  • Its been a while since I visited Rosamond Zoo. It was a nice quiet Monday. Some exhibits were under construction but we were able to see quite a bit of animals close and some were awake and roaming their cage. The Tigers cage can use some upkeep. There was a nice exhibit in the center of the zoo for the primates. It was nice to see the monkeys enjoying the ropes. Overall a nice hot and calm day with the family.
  • Beautiful zoo, reasonably priced, clean, and well maintained. I was very impressed with how healthy the animals appeared to be. Staff were friendly and informative. They have spray areas for cooling and there is plenty of parking. We had a wonderful time and will definitely go again. Great place to spend a few hours. I highly recommend it.
