    Our family met at the Zoo to celebrate our grandson's third birthday. There were 4 families. It was a great day for all! Of course the playground at the end with bread bowls of clam chowder were highlights. The kids especially enjoyed the big cats, the giraffes and the prarie dogs! Everything was clean and felt quite safe which allowed everyone to enjoy the day!

I haven't Been there in 38 years. It is a wonderful place to visit. If you live way out of town ,leave way far in advance . I live in the Sacramento area and it takes an hour and a half to get there . But it is on the other side of San Francisco. My daughter and I got there a couple minutes before we wouldn't have made it in .

anxious about covid countermeasurn but overall activity was totally satisfying.

the exchange of voucher to ticket was easy and fast. we had a great experience.

The kids had a great time. A lot of animals to see. We can't wait to go back.
