Smart, smallish, splendid Zoo!

Like all zoos, best for kids, but adults will be impressed by the thoughtful presentation of its well-cared-for animal population.

Try to plan your trip early in the day. Fresno can get into the triple digits during the summer. You are going to LOVE this zoo

The best zoo everrrr
Aug 2021
this is a great experience. The caretakers have put a ton of effort into naturalizing the zoo and the visitors get to experience it all with the animal eye lens. Love it.

Very nice zoo
Aug 2021 • Solo
It's currently under construction for what looks like a huge Asian exhibit. It will be impressive when it's done. Even before the new exhibit is done, the zoo is very nice. Most of the animals have very nice environments. The zookeeper talks were very well done. The only issue I have are extra things that aren't included in the admission You can't see the stingrays or dinosaur exhibit without an extra fee. The lodge Cafe has very good, reasonably priced food

Exceeded expectations
Aug 2021
Wow! This really exceeded our expectations!
The Cafe where you can view the savannah while dining was great! Feeding giraffes, bird area and dinosaur experience were awesome!!

Really fun! Warning, if it's summer, it will be HOT. A lot of the animals were tired/resting the day we went because the heat was so intense. I think Fall, Spring or Winter visit and early in morning would be best timing.

Nothing too exciting, poor signage/maps
Aug 2020
A bit disappointing but didnt expect much otherwise. Pretty much you can only visit outdoor sections due to covid. shame that they make you pay extra for some exhibits, its not that big of a zoo in the first place. the elephant giraffe rhino areas were nice. otherwise wasn't anything overly exciting. The sea lion area seems like a huge section what a waste of space for the 1-2 sea lions hiding swimming in the corner. There was very little or unclear signage of where to go and what to do anywhere in the zoo and they dont even hand you a map when you walk in. the whole visit took us 1-2 hours.

Fun and inexpensive as long as you stay safe
Jul 2020 • Family
Went with a group of family for the day and really enjoyed my time there. The dinosaur tour was probably the best part for the kids to see. The adults and kids had fun feeding the giraffes, and the stingray feeding was scary, but exciting. The only problem was that not everyone had masks (the really young children) and we had to avoid some high traffic zones. The good thing was that a nice lady at the sting ray payment box gave us masks for free (THANKS!) and it helped us out greatly.
