Great day for a zoo visit in Sacramento. Animals are a few, but what could be seen was enjoyable. Very clean! Small and quaint zoo. Great for families with kids. Reasonably priced. Cafe/food on-site.

We had fun walking around the zoo in the morning. They have some interesting animals like the ant eater and lemur. Overall, the zoo is pretty small so the price tag felt pretty steep. We have a membership to a zoo in another state that...More
