The Mission of the Utica Zoo is to foster public understanding and appreciation of wildlife species and their ecosystems through education, conservation and recreation. Located in Roscoe-Conklin Park, the Utica Zoo was established in 1914 as part of a recreational complex made possible by the donation of land from Thomas R. Proctor. The zoo has grown from its beginnings with three Fallow deer to its present collection of over 200 animals from around the world.
