Nice zoo. Easy walk for small children. Cool day so animals were out. Had to pay extra for kiddie rides but take the train ride.

I loved it all, very friendly staff, give you lots of information, take their time to talk to you, and tell you all you want to know about the zoo and its residents, good food, and a picnic area if you bring your own. i will go here again and again.

Love to go to zoos. We are an mature *(o k, actually an older couple in our 60's). We go to Zoo without any children, and enjoy our visits.

Love the Oakland Zoo because of the location, the layout of the open spaces and the great variety of animals there.

The staff is really nice. There is good food varieties available and you can just enjoy the day taking your time thru the park.

It is great to be a member, you can go visit for just a couple of hours. Explore a different area each time. Never tire the little ones too much.
