It's a tiny zoo, inside of Irvine Park and only costs two dollars to visit. If you want to see some big California black bears, this zoo has really poured the money into their display, with beautiful trees, a good area of land and a large waterfall.
You can pet the goats. It is free to enter their enclosure. I really liked them. They are so friendly and have such pretty, interesting eyes. The woman in charge told me they have different personalities and she even knew who the mother was, and which ones were her grown children.
If you love indigenous trees and plants, each main display has various California species, with information about its whereabouts. It was quite hot on an August day when I visited but they provide an unusual amount of shade. There also seems to be a focus on the small group of islands that are part of California, with a fox from one of those islands.
