Oakland Zoo, Oakland Reviews - Write a Review
We have had a great time, each time we've gone. My daughter loves the animals, and learning about them. It's a smaller zoo, nothing huge and fancy, but it's well cared for. It's clean, the enclosures are nice and nothing looks horrible. I do hope they are able to update more and more as they've been doing this last year.
This zoo has a nice layout for those looking to get your kids tired. My recommendation is to park in the lower lot as you will then be walking down hill at the end of your visit. The African animal section is great. The new sky Cafe and lift are fun. The otters, petting zoo, and bug house are my son's favorites.
This is a very nice zoo. Oakland doesn't have a very positive reputation and I really had a lot of reservations about this place before go with my daughter on a field trip. I have to say, I was very impressed. The animals looked great and well cared for. Lots of space for them. The staff was very friendly and educational. I would recommend and I wouldn't have a problem going back. This zoo is better than San Francisco's zoo in my opinion, even though it has fewer animals.
It was a great experience and my daughter loved it. The only drawback was the young lady who was operating the airplane ride was extremely rude. One of the planes wasn't working properly. When the stick is pulled back on, the plane is supposed to go up in the air. This little girl was pulling on the stick and the plane wasn't rising. The little girl was visibly upset, she was crying but the young lady operating the ride refused to admit that the ride was malfunctioning. She refused to let the little girl ride again on a different plane. Plus, she was extremely rude to three parents standing in line with their children. Other than that, the rest of our experience was rather pleasant. All the other employees were very courteous and kind.
Great place to take the kids for an outing. There's lots of different exhibits and they are currently adding another large section. Not impressed by the food selection, but I usually bring my own anyway. You could spend the entire day here. Definitely recommend the membership so you don't feel like you have to see everything when you go, but can always come back.
