Adults $3, Kids $2. The Zoo is small and you're done with it in 30 minutes. That's the bad part. But the AMAZING part is how close you are to the animals. You can really connect with them. They have Bears, Monkeys, Alpacas, Goats, and a female Lion just to name a few. It's worth the visit.

A friendly, relaxed fun experience at one edge of large city park, but the old school cages will make some a bit uncomfortable. I was uneasy about the bears especially in a rather small area. Gift shop has fun stuff and snacks, PS it can get HOT in Merced in summer so plan accordingly.
