Catered Celebrations

Seneca Park Zoo is the perfect place for a fun and memorable event. We have unique venues for nearly any occasion and group size, all in the beautiful surroundings of the Zoo. You and your guests will enjoy delicious cuisine and personalized service from the Zoo’s own catering team, Eagle’s Landing Cafe and Catering.
