Yesterday was the perfect day to visit the Rosamond Gifford Zoo at Burnet Park (1 Conservation Place, Syracuse, New York 13204). They are open every day from 10:00 am – 4:30 pm, so I imagine every day is a perfect day to view the magnificent animals who live there.
Check out their web-site for more information including exciting upcoming events and party planning opportunities, as well as membership info.
There is a wonderful gift shop at the entrance filled with high quality stuffed animals (my favorite was the flamingo). There were all sorts of things for all ages – toys for the children and beverage glasses (think shots) for the adults.
We had so much fun. Bobbi and I are both art teachers. I predict animal art is in our students’ collective future.
This may be my new happy place. You should go – become a member and admission is free or use the Onondaga County library pass (good for four people), or wait until you are sixty-two and it is only $5.00. Or just go. It is $9.00 for adults, $5.00 for children (babies up to two years old – free).
