This is a sweet little local zoo - just a few dollars to get in and it's very nice. Go here about twice a year.

What a lovely hour or so we spent at the Folsom animal sanctuary with our grandchildren. This is not a large zoo, so don't go there expecting that. It is a home where injured and suffering animals have been taken in and are nursed back to health in a safe environment. There are quite a few animals and yet they... More

This zoo has been around since I was a kid and it's the best little zoo. If you don't won't to drive out of town or want to walk for hours go to this one. It has a great variety of animals to keep your interest in half the time. Take your kids or grandkids on the train ride. It's... More

We visited on a Saturday afternoon and were kind of disappointed because a lot of the animals were sleeping. But we were able to see quite a few while walking around. I enjoyed seeing the peacocks roaming around the zoo. They were gorgeous! My favorite part was the bears. A couple were sleeping, but close to the front of the... More

This zoo is larger than you would think. Take the time to read each animals story because that is the reason this zoo is special and amazing. Every time I go, I continue to be amazed and am so proud to show it off to visitors.

When visiting Folsom it's a nice place if you just want to spend part of your day at a zoo. Not too big. They have done a lot of remodeling. The gift shop is small but, nice and there's even a snack bar and park for the kid's.

This animal rescue aka zoo is a good value. Much more so than the Sacramento Zoo. More animal variety, picnic tables nearby, and a kid size train! In the hotter months, go early so you wont catch the animals napping. Fee is $5 or $6 for adults; children $1 less. Very family affordable.

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
