With interesting and hands-on exhibitions not to mention feeding and petting areas, the Oakland Zoo is a fun and great place for kids and friend groups to spend an afternoon with animals. Like many zoos, this one has great animals to see, and a sky lift that enables you to have a good look on the African area animals is a plus.

Educational programs are also available which teaches the young ones how to behave towards animals, how to take care of them and how to care for them. The zoo may not be big but maybe that is what makes it so great.

Address:
Interstate 580, CA, USA

Price:
Kids: $8.50, adults: $12.50

Opening Hours:
10am-4pm every day.
