Where are we going today?

Ready for that WILD family day out? Well, lucky for you Micke Grove Zoo has five acres of animals that you can come face to face with, giving you just that!

Micke Grove Zoo has been giving families an animal-tastic day out since 1957. You really can see creatures from all over the world - and you don't need to leave California!

Kids can watch those playful lemurs in the trees, or learn what a padu is! Have you ever heard of a fossa? Well, there is one place you can discover that adorable mammal!

You can see how Bobcats interact, and learn about conservation when you visit species such as the snow leopard.

Let's not forget about the birds, either! Micke Grove Zoo has birds of prey, including the hawk, and stunningly colorful birds such as the Scarlet Ibis!

For those who love the reptiles, Micke Green Zoo has animals for you, too! There are adorable geckos, and turtles, and even a tortoise.

In fact, there are over 130 animals at the zoo, representing over 50 different species. 

Zoos are a great place for kids to learn about wildlife, habits and habitats, and really gain and understanding of the world, and why we should protect it through conservation - and Micke Grove Zoo is no different!

So kids - what animals are you going to visit first?

    A waste of time. $5 to park, another $5 per adult to get into the zoo which is full of empty cages. There were a few monkeys in one cage, a large cat of some type sleeping too far away to see from the walkway, and a big lizard sleeping on a log. I went there as a kid and it was great, lots of animals, so I wanted to bring my kids and it was a huge letdown. The zoo in Merced is small but 100X better and costs less. I won't be going back to Micke Grove again. And I wasn't the only one, ran into some other people there who were shocked at just...Read More

    This is the place to go when there is nothing to do. The zoo is very small, but it's better than nothing. The japanese garden is beautiful, and the playgrounds are some if the best for many miles. Skip the amusement park here though. Very small, WAY overpriced, ancient equipment and high school drop outs run the rides. Last I was here the little punks were talking about smoking dope and partying when they got off. Good for you kid, do the world a favour and go crawl in a hole and never come out.

There website is very misleading making you think you will actually see animals. I actually wanted a refund but they refused of course.
