  • It’s a small zoo, compact and easily seen in a few hours. The exhibits are fun and the kids really enjoyed the carousel ride more than once. The parking lot is close by, so the walk is not very far. W...  more »

  • I had a great time at the SI zoo. And ate at the cafeteria..the food was fresh, hot and high quality😎 also priced Right! 4 kids and two adults ate for 32$. I will remember to bring my zoo membership card from CT next time since the ticket agent said I had to pay because I forgot the pass home!!
  • This place is all the way out in Sylmar, and is pretty small, but cool at the same time. You can easily see the entire grounds in 30 minutes, but the staff is very helpful and informative in making the experience more immersive. We had a close experience with the sloth, which I am happy we did. We were able to pet them, not hold them, but feed them and get up close. This is a great place to bring the kids if you are against, or don't want to go all the way to the zoo.
  • Very small zoo. Almost no large animals. Indoor displays seem a little sad, but have some interesting things to see. Petting zoo costs extra. Really bad food at the cafe; bring your own.
  • I had such a great time at the SI Zoo! I haven't gone in about 5 years and since they've gotten a lot of new animals, and they seem to have a lot more staff on hand. Excellent staff, and an excellent zoo experience!
  • Fun sized easy to visit zoo. Animals are well cared for. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Kids love the carousel.
