Oakland Zoo Reviews & Ratings

  • This is small zoo but it's pretty nice. Besides the animals and education associated with zoos it has a great view of the bay from the tram. It also is easy to walk and very kid friendly. There is a small ride park for small children who may get bored easily, a petting area with goats, sheep, and livestock. The zoo is affordable and even food items are relatively cheap. This is great for small children or just to get away for a couple hours.

  • This zoo is huge. Easy to find parking space, family oriented. They got bathrooms, animal play ground for kids, gift shop, cafe. Different animals birds, monkeys, lions, tigers, giraffes, zebras, elephants and so much more. The zoo is very nice and clean and employees are nice, friendly and helpful. I would totally recommend worth every dollar.

  • 👍 Fun ride up gondola with 91 yr old Mother. Fun nature walk on upper level of expanded zoo grounds. Good visibility of wildlife in natural like settings. Courteous staff, lovely view, tasty cafeteria food.

  • This is a great place to bring your kids. They have so many animals and if you come in the morning they are usually active. The gondola ride to the top is also very good as you get the view of the bay. And the ride is free! You'll get to see the bald eagle, wolves, jaguar, bears and mountain lions. This is a fun place for the entire family!

  • Zoo itself is great but customer service is non existent. Employees don't appear all that excited to be there and don't appear to care about customers. This could have easily been a 5 star review if it wasn't for the customer service issues I encountered
