This was certainly a surprise. We did not expect to find such a great zoo in Fresno. It is not the largest zoo but is certainly big enough and does not require a lot of walking between the exhibits

Definitely one of my favorite zoos, and it's a great place for a good day. I always enjoy seeing and learning what they've got in the planning

My children were amazed by all the animals there. They were in love with the giraffes and the fact that they got the feed them was the best part. Entrance was cheap and that was even better.

I really enjoyed the Chaffee Zoo. It has many animals & is very clean. The new sea lion cove looks great, you can even see them swimming underwater which is really neat. The kids love it! The zoo is located on a big park, so make sure to pack a picnic! If not the food inside is reasonably priced.

I love Fresno Chaffee Zoo. We have a family membership which we renew every year. Great place to spend a few hours and have lunch. Please they are putting in a new exhibit called African Adventure that will include African elephants, lions, hippos, rhinos, mere cats, plus much more. Can't wait!
