History

Originally North Park, this three-mile preserve of forested river gorge, was renamed Seneca (which means "stone") to recognize its Native American heritage as well as the deeply cut stone in the river gorge. Another of Frederick Law Olmsted's works of living art, the park includes Trout Lake, created by damming a natural spring. The Seneca Park Zoo was established in the park in 1894 and the majesty of massive polar bears, the grace of elephants and the playfulness of the orangutan have drawn visitors from all over the region to the zoo.
