I'm highly disappointed in Sacramento Zoo My classmates and I decided that it would an awesome non-profit business to do our marketing project on. We thought, since we all live in Sacramento, they would be accommodating; also, since we know people who have donated to the zoo. However, when we emailed to schedule a time where we could meet with the marketing director name Roy Kinji, he wrote back and said that the Sacramento Zoo wasn't interested and we should choose another company. I will not go to the Sacramento Zoo no more and will tell all my friends, family, and students at Sacramento State to not contribute to the Zoo. Obviously, the Zoo doesn't support students. And plus, they missed an opportunity to market to the Sacramento students!
Dirty, expensive, broken down, empty and did I say dirty? Should be ashamed of the way they have let this place go to hell. The animals looked very depressed and it made me sad. I will never go there again
I heard alot of negative things about Sacramento Zoo. I have been going to this zoo since my son was two years old. He is almost five now. We always get the membership. And my son loves the place. We wish they put a really good playground. Then my son would even go more often.
We have to support ouir zoo. If we conplain, this place would go no where. We just have to remember that this is a public place running by limited budget and staff, and volunteers. I think they are doing a great job.
I don't know what people want them to do.
My family and I did not enjoy our experience at the Sacramento Zoo what so ever! It is a lousy Zoo. A guy was teasing the lion and no one that worked there came to see what was going on. The lion was making very loud distress noises.
We left the zoo and we were walking back to our SUV parked in the park, parking lot. With our 3 children We saw some cholo looking dudes in our SUV stealing everything they could get their hands on... My husband chased after them and they tried to stab him. The Zoo did not care about what had happened to us. When I called 911 the dispatcher told me to drive to the police station. After screaming at her that we were not going to do this they sent security to come stay with us until CSI came to take fingerprints. The people were followed by some really awesome bystanders that followed them and stayed on the phone with the police until the police came and pulled them over. We had on of their shoes for evidence and the guy had the matching shoe that showed it was infact him. Needless to say he spent a few years in jail, after we identified him in a lineup! :) Horrible neighborhood!
well i was born and raised in sacramento and visited this zoo every friday for numerouse years you guys all complain about the size and the exibits well hello people do you think this place can opperate without the support of the comunity if it seems to small or not up to snuff then reach into those pockets and pull out a donation on the average a lion eats about 200lbs of meat in a day can you afford that on a year im thinking not but the zoo has to make it work and also maintain a safe inviroment for the animals so if you would like to see improvements then donat i have sence moved to bakersfield california but i still go back once a year and have donated every year since i was 20 years old...so unless you are a support dont bash this zoo thank you jeannie
Me and my family went to the Sac Zoo on a free admission day. The place was a bit on the crowded side, but otherwise a nice little zoo. The animals looked very healthy and well-kept, and the zoo was on the small side but cute. Pretty nice place, but I would probably only go back if they had another free day.
Our family recently visited from Los Angeles. We love Sacramento, and a visit to your see is a must see for any visitor to the state capital. We found it clean, easy to navigate, and enjoyed the day tremendously.
It wasn't as big as I expected but it beats some of the zoos I have been to. We got to see a lot of animals that can't be seen anywhere else. We had a nice picnic and overall had a great weekend here. The orangutan was a bit frustrated though, I don;t think he likes people.
And thank God. Mickey charges $150 bucks to get in! At $9.per it's a little pricy for what looks like a retirement home for animals. If it were $5 i would go more often just to see what happens next. My first view was a building full of Hippo, Giraff skulls and other dead animals in various positions. The other animals were interesting if you could find them in their liberal paradise exhibits where they choose to be seen or not. My thought is that they are so comatose they can't come out of the weeds unless they get a good poke. The Chimps looked rode hard and put away wet. Besides needing walkers and viagra for a wener literally dragging in the dirt, they all had that just throw me a gun so I can off myself look on their face. When I was a kid in Detroit they had the chimps wearing clothes and riding miniture motorcycles. The great apes smoked cigerettes all day that the crowds threw to them until they started getting lung cancer. Now that was a show! These animals are bored! They ought to spice up their lives and put the lion in each exibit for awhile to stir things up. Now that would be a real taste of Africa!
