“Short and Sweet”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

This is a smaller zoo that you can complete in a few hours. This is perfect for younger children since they get tired so quickly! Warning though, it's a hot place in the summer! Bring lots of water. There are some picnic areas if you want to pack your own food. The zoo is usually clean and staff is usually friendly.

“Nice place in town..clean and organized”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I went to the zoo over the weekend. The zoo is pretty organized with a quite a few different animals. But I think they should have more exotic animals. Overall ambiance was great and it had nice eating places within the zoo.

“Sacramento Zoo”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

I love walking through the zoo & watching the animals, although, there are times when can not be seen due to their being inside sleeping.

A small zoo but just chock full of animals. Very easy to get around and see everything. Lots of interesting displays and programs as well. I would definitely revisit.

“Those poor animals....”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

How about upgrading the Zoo??? Most of the animals are old, have died or just have a crappy cage.... make it appealing for the poor captured animals at least. You have so many fundraising events, then upgrade the cages at least for god's sake!
