The Sacramento Zoo is home to more than 400 animals, including the snow leopard, red panda, eagles and reptiles. In addition to the animals, the zoo has lakes, gardens, an educational amphitheater, and a train that runs through the premises. Service and amenities also include picnic areas, concessions, gift store, stroller rentals and complimentary wheelchairs.
I had very good memories from the Sacramento Zoo as a kid. If I remember correctly, I got ride an elephant! But in the last 10 years, it has definately gone down hill. The animals I remember have either died, or somehow been moved or whatever. (like the hippo, and the elephant) And most of the animals don't really look in good condition anyway, and their habitats are not up to par, I don't think. The zoo is pretty small and the employees didn't exactly seem friendly. The price is fine, but I wasn't that interested in what I paid for.
This zoo has outdated cages, way too small for the animals. The animals are few and far between; the odd giraffe, no hippos, no lions, no tigers, no elephants even though the temperature would be perfect for keeping them. My children left asking "what did the animals did wrong as to be confined in prison". I think that sums it up. DON'T GO!!!
I was thinking about going to the zoo here in sacramento, where I have lived all my life and went to the zoo growing up. I cant believe the crazy prices to see animals, and most of the time they are hiding and you cant see them! I remember when the zoo was 2 bucks to get in and look around...this is absolutely crazy!
I took my children to the Sacramento zoo which felt more like a ghost towm. Most of the animal pens were empty, and the animals still left were out of sight. We pay entrance fees for four people to see ducks and flamingo's. I could have taken my kids to the local animal shelter and seen more varieties of animals. The zoo was not worth the gas.
The location is kind of strange, there isn't any real parking area, you just have to drive around the block to search for a spot. Otherwise the zoo is nice, I wish it were a little bit bigger but the animals were fun to look at. Good place to take the family for a 1/2 day trip.
The Sacramento Zoo, located in California's capital, is the largest accredited zoological park in the demographically diverse Central Valley. Set on 15-acres in William Land Park, the zoo opened in 1927. Accredited by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association since 1975, the zoo collection exhibits more than 400 animals including 32 endangered or threatened species in a lush park environment.
The zoo manages national breeding programs for two endangered species:
thick-billed parrot and golden-bellied mangabey. We offer the zoo visitor wildlife wagons, animal talks, and stage presentations as well as our ZooMobile outreach program. Annual attendance is 450,000, with approximately 80,000 school children visiting the zoo each year on organized field trips.
The Sacramento Zoological Society, formed in 1957, assumed daily financial management of the zoo (from the city of Sacramento) in July 1997. Since its inception, the society has served as the fund-raising organization for the zoo, providing funds for habitat improvement, education and conservation programs
