  • Extremely surprised for the amount of animals ( I expect less due to the fact that is in a park), and the price:$2/person. My granddaughter had a blast petting the goats and feeding the sheep. And her eyes got bigger when she saw the bear! Nice, shady, relaxing! The park is huge, with multiple playgrounds, bathrooms, there is a lake, paddle boarding, food, and more. Awesome place to spend a day with your family!
  • This is a great place, especially for younger aged children. My kids love it. They have animals that you cannot find at the two larger Zoos ( LA and Santa Ana). I do have to say it is tiny and you can walk the whole thing fairly quickly however the price is really good to get in.
