  • We visited Atascadero and decided to check out the little zoo. We weren't expecting much, but were pleasantly surprised. The zoo was neat, clean, educational and enjoyable. The animals appeared well c...  more »
  • Very small. They didn't pass out a map for first time visitors, but I guess you don't really need one. No place to eat here, so you'll need to go across the street to Marina's Cocina. Exhibits and ani...  more »

  • A small zoo in a cozy park setting. Great for quick visits, as you can easily see everything in less than an hour. Seeing the tiger was pretty cool, but the other animals are also worth checking out. With a beautiful lake nearby, it has all you need for a relaxing Sunday afternoon.
  • Needs work! "The Lion is Lonely...! He means and names and some male and female Cubs he needs medicine a healthy diet with a lot of calories and good good health if you want he needs to run around in the wild in the protected habitat and or retrained to survive in the wilderness and or National Forest. give him 8 weeks of training plus to be stress and eight weeks of training he needs to make more tigers tigers are becoming and endangered species. They need to be rescued the primates need to be trained and set free as well not to mention the rest of the animals are bored out of their mind like they're in the prison," Timothy Scott Stated. . "Manana make them more intelligent and adaptable and respect human beings as certain animals please yourselves go to Zoologist University And what not. I give you two additional Stars if you comply." Thanks bye. 01/03/2028
  • This place is a small but beautiful zoo. The community of Atascadero takes pride in this well managed, accredited facility. The staff is knowledgeable and care deeply for the animals entrusted to them. The President of the Board of Directors is a veterinarian who has been affiliated with the zoo for many years. Do visit the zoo. It's a great way to relax and learn at the same time.
  • We buy season passes for our family and love spending our summers visiting all of our animal friends! For the size, it's a great little zoo!
  • Great adventure for kids! We brought our 1 year old here and it was a great experience for his first zoo visit. It's small as far as zoos go, but they have a lot of cool exibits and we took our sweet time looking at everything. I wish every zoo was this size because we actually enjoyed it, rather than trying to rush through a million exibits.
