What a great zoo! It's small but it doesn't feel like it if you take the time to look at each exhibit. The zoo staff are knowledgeable and you can tell that they spend a lot of time with the animals and really care about them. There's a variety of different animals which all look they are very well taken... More

Small Zoo. I have small children who like the petting Zoo portion. So it is a good place for half day trips for us. The new otter attraction is a favorite. Catch times to watch them feed the otters. Different activities for children throughout the year for members. For an adult it is small and few animals. Good place to... More

I always enjoy the zoo in Eureka. For the size of the town the zoo is great. Great fun for kids. The petting zoo is always a hit. When you go do yourself a favor and try the cafe.

If you have young children and need a place to spend a morning or an afternoon while in Eureka, the Sequoia Park Zoo is well worth the time and money. It's a tiny zoo, but it's recent upgrades makes it feel large. The new river otter exhibit mesmerizes young and old alike, and the salmon life cycle demonstration is truly... More

Great zoo in Eureka. The grounds are beautiful and the zoo is surrounded by gorgeous old redwoods. The red panda exhibit is truly impressive and allows you to see the animals up close. This is a definite must-see if you are in Eureka.

All of the additions they have done to the zoo are so great! On warm days kids love taking their shoes off and dipping their feet in the water part.

I definitely wasn't expecting much out of a tiny zoo in Eureka of all places, but we had so much fun here we came back the following month. (And we would've come back again and again if we weren't moving across country.) It's a smaller zoo, but I think that actually works to its advantage--you get to spend more time... More

We really enjoy when the otters are out, we wish they would have the trainers interact with them more. Kids love the water feature so bring water boots and a towel or change of clothes if you have littles!

Small but informative with lots of interesting habitats to explore. Great place for families, school field trips or just to hang out and learn about the animals.
