I've been to some pretty serious zoos in my life (National Zoo in D.C., Chicago, Atlanta, San Diego, and others), but this one was an absolute delight!! The zoo is totally kid friendly and includes a petting area where visitors can even feed the goats! It's the perfect size for an hour's worth of fun, and includes a little something... 更多
Lions and Bears, oh my! After a $2 each entrance fee, we walked through this pint sized, shady zoo that had local reptiles and animals. Several rattlesnakes and spiders, pacing mountain lions, coyotes, a bear and a bald eagle made the zoo interesting. No monkeys. The farm friendly petting zoo was lots of fun for my grandchildren. The small goats... 更多
This zoo has a nice selection of snakes, birds, mammals and more! I was surprised to find bob cat, coyote and mountain lions as well as a bear in a zoo this size. The zoo enclosures are not large, so the kids can see the animals quite easily. There are some clever graphic educational displays as well, which the kids... 更多
We love going here for a nice afternoon walking around seeing the animals. They are all well cared for the zoo is extremely clean. Employees very nice and helpful when asked a question. Great for all ages.
We love the perfect sized zoo ducked away in Ervine Park. The beautiful surroundings have something for the young and old. It was a perfect day of visiting the zoo, playing at the playgrounds, walking and having a picnic.
The Orange County Zoo is a beautiful little gem nestled among the trees in Irvine Park. If you arrive early, you can watch the zoo keepers feed the ocelot (around 10:30 AM) and watch mountain lion activity (e.g., feeding and training) at around 11:15 AM. I was particularly interested in seeing the ocelot, bobcats, mountain lions, and the black bear.... 更多
Located within Irvine Park (see review of the Park itself). Offers a variety of native animals, great to teach children about wildlife. A small fee is required to visit.
The zoo itself is cute but the surrounding area also provides things to do which is nice. It has a decent little learning center with great artifacts. The children get to do hands on activities as well. My daughter has really enjoyed this zoo. It's not huge but it's big enough to see many different kinds of animals and critters.... 更多
