This little gem is tucked away in Folsom, and a surprising number of locals don't even know it is there. The zoo grounds are a little more than 4 acres, and all the animals are rescued. Many people may think that animals belong in the wild, not in zoos, but that would not have been an option for these critters.... More

Was better than what I had expected. I came on a hot day in July so many of the animals were not out, so I would recommend coming early in the day.

My kids and I went the week before school started. While they do have food for purchase outside the gate, we brought lunch with us. We went in and walked around a bit, went out and had lunch at the picnic tables by the park and then went back in to see the rest of the animals. It's not quite... More

Folsom City Zoo is one of my favorites. Though it is small and will likely not keep you busy all day, I find it soulful. There are not many exhibits but the ones that are there were created and are maintained with care. They are large enough for the animals to hide and move around. Love the stories of the... More

The Folsom City Zoo was a pleasant surprise. Many more "zoo" type of animals than I expected to see, including tigers, wolves, bears, parrots, hawks, foxes, Zebus, monkeys and deer. No reptiles, although there are displays showing painted plaster replicas of snakes. Nearly all the animals have been rescued -- some were pets and others were injured by wildfires or... More

Pay NO attention to any bad Review of the Folsom Zoo. It is Awesome. If we must contain wild animals, this is a wonderful place to view them. It is small and very very focused on the health and welfare of the animal. How do I know that? Because I am an active volunteer in the community and I know... More

It's a small zoo with decent amount of animals. Me and the wife had a good time at this one and was surprised by all the animals just out and about.

Small and compact. Great for a one to two hour visit. Stayed for a reading session. Great staff and wonderful staging for a small zoo.
