California Day Trips

Sacramento Zoo California “The zoo in the park”

The Sacramento Zoo was started way back in 1927 by the City of Sacramento on 4.2 acres. Today the Sacramento Zoo exhibits over 600 animals, featuring 150 species of carnivores, birds, reptiles, and primates.

The smaller size of the zoo makes it perfect for smaller children. Plan on spending about half a day here. During the summer arrive early when there's not a huge crowd. To save money pack a picnic and eat in the adjoining park.

Parking is free but admission will cost about 12 dollars. The Sacramento Zoo, although small, has a good selection of zoo animals (giraffe, zebra, kangaroo). To make your visit more of an adventure add the Fairytaleland Park next door to your trip.

Annual attendance is 450,000, with approximately 80,000 school children visiting the zoo each year on organized field trips. The zoo offers lectures and tours plus picnic areas, concessions and and a gift store.
