    THE BIRD SPECIES ARE WONDERFUL AND UNUSUAL. I miss the walk through aviary. Before that was modified, I would have given the zoo a five star rating. There also used to be a zigzag-necked giraffe, who was quite charming. The zoo is unexpectedly nice! We have always enjoyed seeing the capeberi too!

    My fiance and I took our two grandchildren to the zoo last Sunday. I am a member of many animal rights groups and I am not generally happy about zoos, although I understand the concept. When people can see, touch, and feel an animal they are much more likely to advocate for it, contribute to saving the species, and object to any harm to other animals like it. I was very pleasantly surprised to see a plant based diet being suggested in the gorilla exhibit. I was thrilled to see the environmental suggestions on almost every animal’s display. The trip to the zoo was educational to all of us and I commend all involved for their consciousness and animal advocacy. The only negative was the guy working at the train who announced that on the 4th of July his family ate “half a cow”.Tell me, what is the difference between the penguin, the elephant, the lion, the flamingo and the cow he ate half of?

    One can view the entire zoo in a day. They have all of the typical animals in a zoo: lions, monkeys, elephants and giraffes. The terrain is not very hilly. The eateries and bathrooms accommodate children by having low seats and vanities. Overall it’s a great place to take a young family to.

    Very family friendly. Our kids (2-7yrs.old) had fun in various areas of the park. A next day visit would have still given the kids more fun moments.

    Wonderful small zoo – great for a half day outing with kids near Santa Barbara. Ride the train and feed the giraffes!
