Located in historic Como Park, this popular zoo, especially known for its California sea lion exhibit, also features a great cat display, gorillas and giraffes.

Always drive through Como Park when visiting. Finally had time to see Conservatory. Really good but highlight was bonsai collection and tea garden was exceptional. This is worth visit alone. Be sure to take in carousel and other parts of this park.

Nice facility to get out of the house and enjoy animals and surrounding gardens. Always on top of our list for things to do on the weekends.

Excellent layout and well thought out exhibit areas for the animals. Can't get much closer to the polar bears and the great apes display is super.

This is a wonderful zoo. I couldn’t believe there was no charge just a suggested donation. We got there close to closing but we’re able to see all of the animals. The grounds and exhibits seem very clean and well taken care of. The animals...More

Don't get me wrong. The Conservatory is great to visit all year round. But, it has a special attraction in the cold of winter. While it is technically free to get in, they do ask for a free will donation. Happily, it seems as if...More

Like this much better than new zoo. Easier to get to and around. Animals are present in nice enclosures and can usually be seen. Parking can be a challenge when school groups are there. I

Yes, they have wheelchairs available. The aisles are wide enough to easily accommodate one.
