After growing up in LA and experiencing the Los Angeles Zoo, this zoo is a little small, but I have read that they are looking to relocate so they can expand. Inexpensive compared to a lot of things, parking can be a bit of a...More

We always have a great time at the zoo. Once we make our way around and see the wonderful selection of animals, we attend a show and have a wonderful lunch as well as other snacks. Good location and not overly crowded.

If you haven't been to the Sacramento Zoo you need to check it out anew. From the baby Snow Leopard to all the wonderful primates and of course the original tall boys it's a great family outing. And don't miss the delightful gift store!

If you've been to any other zoo ever, then then this one is hard to appreciate. I'm from Saint Louis and my wife is from San Diego so we are used to great zoos. Didn't enjoy this one.

I'm not a huge fan of zoos on principle, but the Sacramento Zoo does a very nice job. Habitats are animal friendly and inviting. They've moved away from having a lot of big animals, to animals that are better suited to the size of the...More

First, I have been to zoos all around the world and I will say this is not among the elite, but for a local zoo in a not-huge town this is outstanding. Well kept, good layout, cheap enough to enjoy, and decent food for the...More

We bought our membership the beginning of this year and have taken the kids a ton of times since. If there is nothing planned we go to the zoo, have them play in the new updated kids playground, and have lunch. The kids enjoy the...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
