A very nice zoo. Small in comparison to big cities but that is its charm. Always well kept and clean. Not a full day activity.

Zoo is well organized and liked their vet building where the baby flamingos came from to be fed. The giraffes are wonderful. Could do without the noisy gibbons. The animals were very active since it was cool out so heard the lion roar and parade...More

It was free on Christmas Eve which was awesome. Kids had a blast. Tons of animals. You can feed the giraffes. Didn’t take long to walk the whole thing but it was long enough. Good times and a must see in Sacramento.

Recently took my grand daughter here to see the baby flamingos - which should not be missed. They are a littler older now but still a great feature in the zoo. Get there early when the animals are active.

Fun place to visit for a morning or afternoon. Especially good for smaller kids. Seems to be well maintained. But, quite small.

Great place to take family. My husband and I took our niece and nephew to the zoo. They loved learning about the different monkeys and taking pictures along the way.

It's a fun way to pass half a day with the family and kids. It's not very big but not too small either. The animals seem well taken care of and the walk around is fairly flat so it's easy for elderly and strollers. As...More

Two hours. The food is actually good if you want to stay a little longer. Adding the little train ride and the Merry go round and the giraffe feeding will take more time

I saw two assistance dogs there when we last visited. Check with the zoo anyway.
