    The size of the Oakland Zoo is perfect for toddlers and children under the age of 10. Having visited both the San Diego Safari Park and the Omaha Zoo with open range enclosures, this small zoo managed to create some open space for the large animals like the giraffes, lions, tigers and elephants rather than enclose them entirely in a cage.   On a hot day, the shaded seats in the outdoor theatre can serve as a sitting area to rest or have lunch when there’s no show in progress.  For those with children, the membership plans can be a good deal with free admission most days of the year.

    Great family place — kids love the animals, all seems clean and well-treated, and the mini-amusement park next door is always a hit. Staff is great too — Jeff Patterson, an EMT and fix-it guy there, helped jump-start our car one day and gave our daughter some extra hand stamps she was begging for the other day. Everyone cares!

    Best zoo. Sometimes you can’t even see a lion because the area is so large:)

    It’s a smallish zoo with a lot of ups and downs. So be prepared with good walking shoes. Tigers, giraffes, elephants, monkeys, oh my. They have kangaroos, flamingos, and huge tortoises too. The best feature was the sky ride. The best $3 you will spend at the zoo. We enjoyed that the most.
