The excitement of summer is in the air, and that means there are fun times to be had here at the Seneca Park Zoo through our Birthday Party program. Although we run birthdays all year long, summertime is when we get the most requests and questions about our parties. We would like to take a moment to answer a few of the frequently asked questions we receive in order to help make your birthday party the best it can be!

How long do birthday parties last?

Birthday parties run approximately two hours long. We have two time slots available for booking on Saturdays and Sundays, at 10:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m.

Where do the birthday parties take place?

We have a few options for locations. The Basic and Deluxe package parties are held in one of our two classrooms, which are located in the Z.O.T. Zone building near the middle of the Zoo. The Family Package parties are located within the same building, however they are in our larger conference room. During the summer months we also have an event tent available for parties, located near our Tiger Exhibit.

What other fun things can I add on to my child’s party?

We have a variety of extras that you may add on to make your party extra special.

Can I bring a cake?

Yes, you can bring a cake! To ensure there is no chance of illness we simply ask that it be purchased from a store or bakery.
