We decided to see what some of our local area hot spots had to offer. We were pleasantly surprised and the wildlife walk in Hayward. Lots to see interactive things for all. The mystery spot was funny and the nursery was my favorite because it...More

Very large with lots of walking paths. Felt bad for the bears and tiger in their tiny cages. Other small animals were cool. The free roaming fawns and baby goats are the best!

Was great walk in the wild for a couple of retirees, but would have been even better with the Grandkids.

I expected a small petting zoo with just a few animals, but this turned out to be a nice surprise. They have quite a large collection of animals from around the world, including a Siberian tiger, a camel, bears, wolves, up close and personal areas...More

Much nicer than I expected. For a wildlife zoo, very clean, lots of workers to help you, and fun little side places to see. Lots of places for nice picture taking. Enjoyed it immensely

My family has been going to Wilderness Walk the last 40 years, every single summer. Sadly, it has really gone down hill. Nothing has been updated at all that I can remember. It just keeps getting worse every year and definitely not worth the $50...More

We found $1 off coupons in one of the free hayward lakes travel magazines, sorry I can't remember which one, we picked them up at Walgreens in town before we went. It still cost $58 for 4 adults, but it was worth it.
