My two granddaughter's and I really enjoyed our visit to the Sacramento Zoo! We had not been here for several years. There have been so many updates and newer animal exhibits it makes it so exciting to see all the changes! We sat for over an hour watching the monkeys exhibit. We had such a good time we decided we... More

The Sac Zoo is a wonderful little zoo. We've been more times than I can count in the last 12 years. Sometimes it is very quiet and sleepy, but every now and then the animals are alert and animated and you get to see something very special. The zoo has done a good job over the years updating exhibits. It... More

It could be bigger, seems to be over to quickly, for higher and very early ages great. Close to most areas of Sacramento including suburbs, bring a lunch you are in the park with a huge pond, and lots of walking space

The snow leopard pictured Is neat. They also have an animal I had not seen before, a red Panda. It is compact but has lots of animals, most of which you can get up close and personal.

Clean and well maintained and a little pricey. Fun venue for all ages. Lots of critters with zoo staff throughout. They will often have a bird or animal out of their cage for touch and learn sessions. Kids love the giraffes that can be fed and petted as well as the small train ride tour. Great family outing.

The location is nice, the natural landscape adds to the charm of the zoo. I wish there were more animals, though but maybe it is because of this time of year (January). Overall a good experience.

I am not a fan of zoos and circuses , but I have to admit that this zoo is just the right size for a day trip . Plenty to see and more than enough to keep a hyper active child amused . Animals seem to be in great condition and well card for . Informative details and educational as... More
