Fallen out of fashion these days. Zoo's are a dying breed and this is one that I would take a pass. If a Zoo in in you future, take the 90 mile drive to San Francisco Zoo and see the real thing.

Granddaughter loves to go there. Small and can do done in a few hours. They do have a lot of rescue wild animals that end up calling this home otherwise they would probably just die

Someone had suggested that we take a look at this hidden gem about 20 minutes from Sacramento, and we're thrilled we did. It is a small and eclectic little zoo, but there are plenty of animals to look at, and you can do it close up.

It's a great place to go to and not have to worry about it talking the whole day. They do have some different animals there that the sacramento zoo doesn't have. There is also a nice little park for the kids to play at afterwards.

Was not overly impressed with this as a zoo...many of the animals you couldn't see because of their housing locations and many were probably sleeping during the day.

We loved the relaxed atmosphere of this zoo. You are truly there to see animals. Its not an amusement park, therefore you really get nice time spent with grandchildren talking about the animals and learning

Highly recommend for old and young alike! They have done a lot of work to expand this zoo, and it is a nice place to visit. They have worked tirelessly to rescue animals and provide them a happy, healthy Sanctuary!

I must confess I avoid visiting a zoo of any kind as I detest seeing wildlife in captivity. But ths is different. Ths is a sanctuary for wildlife that cannot live in the wild for whatever reason. I saw mountain lions and bears that looked healthy and happy. I loved witnessing children visiting this venue , gleefully seeing wildlife they... More
