A nice way to spend time with the family.
Look, I grew up going to this zoo so it's sentimental but now that I'm older I can see that the cages and animal areas are way too small and that the animals are probably miserable because of it...
Awesome place. Our son loved it.
Lemurs are awesome!
We just arrived. It's beautiful weather today
Ready for a fun day at the zoo!
Medium sized zoo. It has a bit of everything. Must see tiger, anteater, giraffes, chimpanzees. Perfect for smaller kids to enjoy the animals up close for couple of hours.
Boo at the zoo will be an annual event for me.
Not exactly the biggest zoo but decent size and great way to spend a few hours of the day and see all the cool animals and even some feedings you can do
Loved the zoo today!
The perfect place to work up an appetite for our Italian food, after a long day of LIONS and TIGERS and BEARS! Oh, my! -Piatti Sacramento
Nice enough Zoo, for a mid-sized city. The parking leaves a lot to be desired, however. Plan ahead or you'll be walking a long distance.
Love to watch the zebras! :)
Don't forget to check in. You get a free carousel ticket
Don't miss the chimpanzees! They are the highlight of the Zoo, climbing to the top of their cage, chasing each other around, and grooming each other.
Get married here, we did!
take the zoo camp its great the kids have a great time going behind the stage at the zoo :) <3
Leave a coat for the kids! #news10coats Coats for Kids!
Make sure to be here for the Giraffe Encounter. Only $3 to get up close and personal, feed a giraffe.
The new North American River Otter Habitat is nice :)
For fun, look for a batman symbol, giant fork, a hummingbird, and duck feet at the zoo. They're all "hidden mickeys" around the zoo.
The "talking" Plain-Colored Amazon is a must see!!!
I'm 5'11" and barely fit on the train; it was quite uncomfortable.
Avoid the train unless you want to wait in line for a half an hour.
If you need to change a diaper and find the restroom space awful, use the picnic area near the carousel ... Deserted most of the time.
Just an FYI, when you check here you get a free carousel ticket!!
Kids need to be 42in to ride the carousel alone as there are no safety belts.
Cold days/mornings are best to see the hyena and the snow leopards. Trill your tongue to get the kookaburra to laugh.
After the zoo head over to Fords Real Hamburgers for a tasty burger
Come in the morning, the animals are more active.
Don't bother with the train ride... Not worth the time.
