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.

Hi, when the best part that happened in zoo is a peacock jumping out on the trail, is not a great way to look at zoo. Its a small place, for small parties. Though surely not a place when somebody is looking for a zoo as in zoo.

This is the perfect zoo for little kids. Right size to wander around. All the animals are rescued which makes it all the better. After you are done there is a train ride you can do and a wonder childrens park - all right there. Bring a picnic lunch and you are set.

It is a small zoo, but PERFECT for small children with shorter attention spans! Animals seem healthy and well-cared for. As I understand it, they are "rescue" animals which is nice. Staff is pleasant and friendly!
