“Nice little walk through a very clean little zoo”

Charles Paddock Zoo
Ranked #1 of 17 things to do in Atascadero
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

My son and I had some time to kill while my husband was at work. We had taken our daughter who is 18 years old now back when she was 8 or 9 years old. Our son who is 12 loved it. Felt good about walking through there and we had a great time trying to find all the new turtles. We made it our own little adventure.

The zoo is very small: it only takes about 45 minutes to see it all at a very leisurely pace. Admission is cheap, and visitors can see most of the animals close up.

We have a season pass. My kids take thier scooters and bikes and ride around to see the animals. We are usually there 10-15 mins. Then it's off to the lake park next store. Occasionally we have a picnic in the picnic area. Not a lot of animals, but it is what it is.

Simple and small, many animals reside in well arranged homes, with all the amenities of the jungle or forest.

We checked it out to kill some time before a wedding. It took about an hour to cover everything. I found it boring, but my stepson and wife had a good time.
