Mickey Mouse is popular here in Anaheim but why not check out some of our other animals while in town? Smaller than the LA zoo, the Santa Ana Zoo takes up approximately 20 acres and packs a punch with its many exhibits and keeps you from fighting the ever congested traffic AND…. Parking is FREE!
Take a walk through the Rainforest Exhibit and explore the White Faced Saki Monkeys or the Green Iguana. The Amazon’s Edge replicates the Brazilian rainforests and has a water moat, a wooden deck for viewing the animals and exotic animals such as the black necked swans. The Crean Family Farm is not what you would normally find in a zoo. This exhibit focuses on rare breeds of farm animals and is complete with a two-two story red barn.
Be sure to check out the parrot show while you visit, very interesting and entertaining for the kids. Also, enjoy the rare Giant Anteater. It’s pretty big! Hop on the train and get the lay of the land before you head out on foot.
The Zoo is open daily except for Christmas, New Years and Thanksgiving. During the summer, weekend hours are extended to 6 pm to provide more viewing time for summer visitors. Check out more information regarding events on their website.
