a very good zoo, not world class, but good nonetheless. The penguins are fun to watch and the zoo certainly has big cats, in fact you can view them during feeding time, but come to the big cat house early, as a lot of people go even though it smells really bad. I also recommend seeing the gorillas. Parking can be hard to find

I used to love the San Francisco Zoo when I was younger, but when we recently took my brother for the first time, I realized it was really depressing. What really made me mad was the elephant. There was one big gray elephant that made me sad the most. It was the African elephant, and he just looked so trapped in that little section they had for him. The rhinocerous also made me angry. I used to pity people who hated zoos because the animals are "trapped", but now, I know what they mean. It's horrible.

The San Francisco Zoo is a great place to take your kids to. It's not difficult to find and they have plenty of free parking space. Admission is free on the first Wednesday of every month. It's a beautiful place to walk around in for a few hours. They even have a little train that you can ride in for a few dollars. They also have a playground for kids complete with slides, swings and monkey bars.

Last time I came here (just a couple weeks ago) I was really disappointed. Many of the exhibits were closed. For example I really didn't get to see any monkeys or lions. But usually this zoo is actually quiete cool. Its big and you can spend the whole day walking around. They even have an insect zoo! There is also a childrens zoo and inside is a petting zoo. They havea fun little train that you can ride on and wave to all the people from for $3.00 per person. The food inside the park is really expensive, and not that good so come after you eat. Parking on weekends is hard inside the zoo lot, don't even try. Park away and then take the 10 minute walk, not too bad.

The San Francisco Zoo is always a fun place to go with family and friends. There are so many animals a person wouldn't be able to see anywhere else, and that's what makes it exciting. There's so many things to see and do at the zoo and its a fun learning experience.

I love going to this zoo. It's really nicely organized and clean. I love bringing my neice here. We usually spend most of the day checking out all the animals. It's in a nice location--in the outer richmond, so it's not hard to get too. The harderst part is finding parking sometimes! I would definitely recommend this zoo, it's such a fun way to spend the day!

Although not as well-known as other zoos, I definitely like this zoo the best. I have a youngster, and he loves coming here whenever weather, and our schedule permits. Highlights include the tiger feeding (you're so up close!), the children's zoo, and the new African Safari area. The bugs exhibit is pretty cool for young kids, too. It's much more managable than other zoos, and if you go during the week while school is in session it can be a quiet experience.

PROS: great for kids
CONS:

The San Francisco zoo is excellent. It makes a great day trip adventure.. Accessible via mass transit, they'll give you a discount on your tickets if you show a muni stub. While you're there, don't miss out on "Big Cat Feeding" every day but Monday at 2pm. "See the lions and tigers devour their afternoon meal in the Lion House." It's very cool.

This is a humongous zoo. There are many different sections and tons of animals. I love the family farm where you can touch and feed the animals. The SF zoo is great for children and adults.

PROS: Children play area, tons of animals
CONS: the smell

This zoo is a fun place to go. They have all kinds of animals. I especially like watching the kangaroos. The otters are also cute; they swim up to you sometimes. It's a big zoo and there is a lot of walking. The many times i went i saw the smaller animals. I didn't get to see any bears or big cats. There were a couple of elephants. Overall i give this zoo 4 stars

I love this zoo! There are so much different animals and it really makes you appreciate the wildlife. The zoo workers are nice and friendly and love to answer any questions a person has. There is so much to do there that one day is not enough. The animals look happy and well-fed. Plus, every first Wednesday of the month, admissions is free!

this zoo is very cool. you get to see the animals in their natural habitats unlike some zoos who put them in small places or even cages. the animals here seem very enjoyable and they're just roaming around amongst themselves. very nice place and it's very cheap..sometimes free if you go on a weekend. it's one of a kind and theres a beach right down the street!

i loved this zoo. it was very nice and it had a lot of different areas to roam around and explore in. this is a great place for a family outing. they have wide ranges of different animals and not all of them were in cages. some of them were able to roam free in their habitant and amazingly, they don't run around like crazy attacking everyone. this place is highly recommended, it's very nice and spectacular.

PROS: a lot of different animals and activities
CONS: parking is really bad here.

I have always loved this zoo. It's big and beautiful and you can really appreciate all kinds of different animals that they have here. It's a great place to take children (there's a petting zoo on premisis) and a great place to just be a kid again!!

It is not one of my favorite zoos. They have done some rennovation of the place, but it just doesn't compare to what you think a zoo should be. But being so close to the ocean probably what makes it hard to upkeep. But on the positive side, it is near the ocean and you can go to the zoo then head over to the beach and enjoy the view and smells.

The rennovations at the SF Zoo has improved the overall look and feel of the zoo. However, it still lacks the intimacy that other zoos provide. It feels like the zoo is not completely finished, so hopefully they will continue with the upgrades. Of course, kids seem to enjoy the zoo the most so that's always a plus.
