Zoo has reopened with reserved time slots. Felt very covid safe with hand sanitizers everywhere and most everyone wearing a mask. With limited reservations zoo has not been crowded at all.

Do not buy a membership here! I heard the zoo had opened and so I went to their website to buy a ticket. It was Sunday night and there were tickets Wednesday afternoon and after. I decided to renew our membership and found to my horror that there were NO tickets for zoo members for the period that they were allowing online bookings. The zoo has prioritized non member ahead of members making membership a terrible, useless deal currently.

I had a problem with was the first aid. No sense of urgency. Took 20 mins for him to report to the first aid station and the park wasn't even opened two hours. My wife had sprayed some sunscreen in her eyes and was in pain. instead of having anything such as disposable eye drops, she was given a used bottle of visine from his fanny pack and told to spray her eyes. She was blinded and dropped it. The first aid person was annoyed and said it was still clean and to use it anyways. We were so pissed we vowed never to step foot in this park again. My wife left in tears in physical discomfort. Yes we did walk around the park. The animals overall were not engaging and suffocating for such a large location. This was not world class. The Oakland and SF zoos are so much more welcoming and less confining. When a spider monkey and a bear wave at you or a camel walk next to you. Then that's a sign of a happy zoo. These animals felt like they were in captivity. Your seal show was a bust. The seal refused to come to the trainer and when he did he promptly went back under the water.

Hi Robert. We are sorry to hear you had this experience at the Zoo. If you would like to have someone speak to you about the incident, please email info@lazoo.org. However, we would like to address your comments about the seal. Our animals are never forced to do anything they do not want to do. All of our animals in our care are our absolute top priority. All our animals benefit from expert animal care, enrichment, and veterinary staff who are dedicated to their wellbeing. We hope you have a great day.

Zoo keeps improving year after year. Cleaner and cleaner and the people who work there really love and care about animals. We did the Mingle with Flamingo and it was so worth it. They only have 4 a day so book early! We loved it. We also fed the giraffes and that’s fun and up close. They are still making it better each year and we love seeing the changes.
