Had a great time at the Oakland Zoo. There is a lot of walking and hills, but the animals are well maintained, the staff very friendly. The facilities are really nice, almost too big; at times, playing spot the animal was tough. The children's area is excellent, but doesn't have a clear "path" to follow.
The one thing I was amazed at was the food; the chicken tenders were amazing - probably the best I ever had.
This is a great zoo for a shorter day trip; it isn't quite as big as the San Francisco Zoo, but well worth the trip.
