A day at the San Diego Zoo is a Fun Filled Family Event
The San Diego Zoo is privately operated by the nonprofit Zoological Society of San Diego on approximately 100 acres of parkland leased from the City of San Diego. The Zoo sits on a huge canyon and many of the animals are on exhibit in an environment similar to their own native habitat.
The San Diego Zoo features excellent animal shows, bus tours, a sky rail ride system, restaurants and park areas for taking a break in the middle of the day. The zoo is truly an impressive park and is a favorite for children and adults from all over the region, country and world.
