A lot of basic animals for young kids and some exotic ones as well. It's actually an animal sanctuary. It's kept up very well. We had lots of fun taking our 18 month old grandkids!

Small zoo with lots of rescue animals. Easy place to take kids for an outing if you happen to be in town.

This is a sanctuary zoo tucked next to a City park, perfect to have a day at the zoo and park. The grounds are beautiful and there is a very nice mix of animals, with information about each animal posted on the enclosure. Peacocks everywhere!

Folsom is a nice little zoo. The Mountain Lions are huge and amazing as is the tiger. It's not a large zoo, but is clean and the animals are close. Peacocks roam the grounds and don't seem to mind people. There's also a nice kids'...More
