  • Beautiful zoo in a beautiful location! The animal enclosures are fantastic, they give the animal residents much more space than your traditional zoo, and the mountain environment definitely gives the animals a much more authentic environment to live in. There are plenty of opportunities to learn about the various species living at the zoo, so it is a wonderful for kids and adults a like. My personal favorite in the Wallaby enclosure. They are partially tame from so much interaction with zoo keepers and so the wallaby enclosure is an open area where guests may walk or pull up a bench among the wallabies. No fences or glass needed.

  • Incredible zoo. Giraffe feeding is a must. Bear exhibit requires elevator or stairs but worth it. Lots of uphill walking. Watch for cars driving through park up to the Will Rogers castle. Parking usually good unless holiday. Mountain lion exhibit really neat and super close view. Look into a membership it might save you money even if you go just twice a year.

  • I haven’t been back here since I was a kid and it is a completely different zoo! The animal exhibits were amazing and nothing like I remember. The animal habitats were all huge and provided excellent condition for the animals and viewing for the public. This is definitely a great place to bring small kids and is an excellent family excursion. Well worth the trip for any locals as well as tourists to the area. 👍

  • Such a cool zoo! My family has been visiting here for years and we've always had an awesome experience. The zoo has really been renovating a lot recently, making it that much better (at the cost of higher entry fees, unfortunately). They're going to redo the penguin/hippo exhibit, which has been much needed. The restaurant is really good, too; they've never failed to serve awesome food at a reasonable price (pizza, wraps, burgers, other unique foods like stuffed peppers, etc.). It has gluten free buns if you're wondering. This zoo is awesome! Definitely check it out!

  • Is highly recommend this beautiful zoo. I've never seen so many happy animals. A majority of the exhibits are built into the mountain and are natural which makes for happy animals. For $5 two people can feed the giraffes. It was so much fun! There is a children's play area and a goat petting area as well as the adorable petable wallabies in the walk-about section of the zoo. One of the most surprising areas was the reptile area, usually my least favorite, this one was set with beautiful non-traditional exhibits featuring colorful glass beads, flowers and decorative feeding bowls. Each was designed to enhance the colors of the reptile on display. I've never spent so much time admiring a snake as I did here. I'd happily go again and again.
