Had a great visit with the grandkids. Zoo trail is a big circle, that goes up the hill and comes back down again. Could see everything in about 3 hours. Animals look healthy and well cared for - areas for animals are large and interesting....More

Great zoo to visit with whole family. I have teenagers and younger children. Sometimes hard to please everyone. The animals were beautiful and there was a lot of educational opportunities

This is a smaller zoo, the price is lower than most. I rated this average because we went while several exhibits were down, they are in transition. I can tell you if you have younger children they will love this zoo. There is a lot...More

My husband and I love going to the Rosamond zoo. We even decided to get a membership. The zoo is small but has a great variety of animals that we weren't expected to find here. Some enclosures seem a bit small for the animals but...More

I just can’t with this zoo. I’m not bringing my kids back. Some animals look like they’re having fun (penguins), others (lions) look like they’re waiting for death.

Have visited this zoo twice now. Once with the whole family in August 2017, and most recently in February 2018. Great zoo. Small by comparison to the Toronto Zoo, but a great walking size for young kids. All the exhibits are fair sized, clean, bright....More
