  • This zoo is medium to small. They are expanding which will be a nice addition once done. I had a map and there are signs but I felt they could do a better job helping people figure out where they are and where to go. Park people I interacted with were polite but not overly friendly. Overall a great zoo and would definitely visit again. My only complaint is the website showed animals that are part of the upcoming addition and not currently available so it was misleading.

  • Great zoo, new gondola is amazing! There are a lot of hills, so it's moderately strenuous to spend the day there. Apart from the zoo (separate, but adjoining) is a small amusement park for younger kids. The little train is very cool, as it enters the zoo and gives an up close view of some of the Australian animals as well as beautiful views of the whole Bay Area (on a clear day). Views from the new gondola station are great too, but it gets windy up there, so bring a jacket! Hope this helps you plan your visit.

  • I haven't visited in a few years and so much has changed. The new area they are building higher up in the hills will be opening sometime soon and looks like it's going to be amazing. The area will have animals that are indigenous to California. It's great to see the money going to great improvements and additions to the zoo. As a child we'd visit every Easter and enjoyed all the animals. I now bring my children and they love it just as much as I did. My favorite are the Lions and tigers. Such beautiful and majestic creatures.

  • What a fun time! We recently went here and had an absolute blast. We had a great time checking out all of the animals and were pleasantly surprised and the quality of the pens here. The staff was friendly and we can't wait to come back once the new zone opens up on the hill! Also, go see the elephants if you get the chance! They were so animated when we saw them, it was a very cool experience.

  • This is one of the few zoo's I actually like going to. It's clean, well laid out with a good variety of exotic animals in enclosures I consider reasonably humane. There's lots of goodies to entertain little ones. It's a good size too, you can cover it in about 3 hours at a leisurely place. The only thing I don't like about it is the crowd. Wow! it is popular on the weekends. If you get the chance to go on a weekday, you'll enjoy it much more.
