  • The zoo is an amazing place to visit. It is very well laid out with enough shade everywhere to keep you from being in the sun all the time. The exhibits are very well done. Zoo staff all very friendly and helpful. We loved our experience at the zoo. I would recommend anyone to visit the Fresno Chaffee Zoo, it's an amazing place
  • We haven't been there in years and it all looked good. The new part of the zoo was great. Our Zoo is looking great!! We took my 86 year old mom and she enjoyed herself and the food was there good too. I highly recommend everyone to visit it.
  • Come here once or twice a year with my daughter. The frogs and fairytale and Halloween events are great. We love the new savannah attraction and feeding the giraffes but the wait is usually horrible. The food in the food court is really good. Recommend the chicken salad sandwich
  • Such a great zoo. I went when I was younger and just took my kids for the first time. The expansion is great and the new restaurant was amazing. Such a cool spot to eat and watch the animals.
  • Nice zoo, has a variety of animals, reptiles, birds & different things to see. Has a couple areas to sit & eat at. Also has a nice rain Forest type garden with a man made water fall bridge to cross. Also has a gift shop most items are over priced & expensive. Overall was nice visiting the zoo.
