My recent visit with my 3 yr. old and 1 1/2 yr. old nephews was such great fun. It's more than seeing animals in cages. It's realizing thirst animals were rescued and now have a safe home. There are fun things the kids can do...More

It's a great 1/2 day excursion, or all-day, if you want to add something. Area has many family friendly things to do. We choose Folsom because we were able to include a nice Saturday drive, a cute little Train Ride, lunch and an ice cream...More

The zoo has monkeys, tigers, and snakes, but also grazing animals in a large enclosure.! Be sure to check out the small train nearby. The city library in the same area is worth a visit too, and has a snack bar.
