This small zoo is a great place to take young children for an hour or two. Even though there aren’t many animals, there were a few that we had never seen at any zoo, or even heard of before (for example, a fossa!). There is...More

This is a small community zoo, best for small children. Nearby park and picnic area as well. Don't expect elaborate zoo displays.

Small town zoo, with a lot of new upgrades and modern updates. Great way to spend a day then enjoy the day in the park.

Nice little zoo. Pretty clean, and good exhibits. Don't expect anything super big, plenty of monkeys and smaller animals. Very affordable

Mickey Grove is a small local zoo but it is a lot of fun for the younger kids. We have the year pass and we go all the time! There is a small play structure for the under 6 crowd. Don’t expect a big zoo....More

William Micke and his wife Julia donated the entire park to the San Joaquin county many years ago. The couple had no children of their own, but they were devoted to the people of the area. They made improvements, built this zoo, built the rose...More

We go each year. My church holds a picnic at the park. It’s a pretty interesting park. It seems clean and well organized. Some of the enclosures seem a little small but the animals look no worse for the wear. The information plaques are pretty...More
