Very clean and lots to see. Giraffes are amazing and you can get very close. Reptile pavilion is a great place to see lots of different types of snakes.

It's the Sac zoo, better than the Folsom zoo. Go early as possible, that's when the animals are out and about the most. Look for a Groupon and you can get a family of 4 in for around $25. It's worth about a 4 hour...More

I hadn't been to the zoo in years. It hasn't changed much. Parking can be difficult to find so get there early if you can. It has a decent variety of animals for a small zoo and there are plenty of trees to stay out...More

Not the biggest zoo I've been to, but the size is great for young children and exhibits are interesting.
