The Buffalo Zoo is the third oldest zoo in the United States and it definitely shows. The exhibits look like they haven't been updated/renovated in decades, and not many of the animals look happy to be there. The only cool thing about it is you can see the buffalo for free if you go to the side of the zoo facing Delaware Park.
