Enjoyed my first visit. I was a little bummed to see multiple exhibits closed. I really enjoyed the Aviary. That was pretty cool. Go early on a weekday, and you can practically enjoy the zoo all to yourself.
Finest park in San Joaquin County. Nicely maintained. Fantastic old oak trees provide lots of shade. Picnic areas for every size gathering. Wonderful place for children. Best of all ~ dogs on leash are allowed. (Reminder: Keep it beautiful by picking up your trash & dog waste.)
It's a zoo and more...the park is amazing,so much space. Lots of trees and shade. Picnic tables everywhere and jungle gyms for the little ones. The zoo is within the park. It's tiny and cute,it's a soothing calm zoo. It wasn't full when we came(Thursday morning) you see between 10 and 15 animals. There is no food available or a little store to buy trinkets and stuff. It's great for Littles if you can keep them calm and somewhat quiet.
The zoo was wonderful. The little monkeys, birdies, snow leopard, bobcat, fox, and all the other little fur babies were so sweet and beautiful. Staff was awesome. I really enjoyed my time as always. Thanks Micke Grove! ❤🐅🌳🐿🏞🦊🦅
Very nice little zoo. Don't expect to spend all day here, the whole grounds are probably about 5 acres, but has lots of interesting animals, a snow leopard, some little monkeys, pudus, a variety of birds and a bunch of other stuff. The fossa is so cool! I really like how small this place is because you're right up next to the animals. They're just a couple feet from you. The grounds are super clean and well cared for. Just a really sweet, fun little place. Staff very kind and helpful.
Very nice little Zoo at a great price. Spent there about 90 minutes and barely felt it. Went there early and it wasn't crowded and most animals were active. I did miss the Snow Leopard so I think we'll come back at a later date. Definitely worth checking out.
Great place for family reunions, weddings , birthdays, events, and spending time with your love ones. Reserve an area for your event, and also visit the zoo, kids theme park & Japanese Garden. Locals enjoy this Grove since elementary school, so pick up your mess after your party. If some have negative views about this park , perhaps volunteer are donate to Mickey Grove Regional Park. I have been visiting this park since 1971 , Eric Rodriguez
We decided to use one of the playgrounds. It's mostly for big kids. Although they have ones for smaller kids also. She had a blast with her cousins and it became full really fast because it was a 🌞 day..
Took the girls to the zoo and it was fun. The prices were reasonable and the scenery was beautiful. Lots of pretty animals and birds. Will return in time.
Awesome place to go with children. The park has playground ds, the zoo is small but enough when you are dealing with 2 or more children! It's awesome to celebrate parties.
For a park, that you pay around $6 to enter, it is a pretty nice spot. There were people everywhere enjoying the scenery, relaxing, and playing disc golf. It seems the golf courses on the side of the park may be a little too close. It was okay nonetheless. If you're looking to really go for a walk, this park is HUGE!!! The sites are nice and the park is fairly well kept. I'd say, for the $6, totally worth the visit. Even if you're just going for some nice scenery while you do your work. I'd pick this spot over a coffee shop any day.
Great park. Lots of great memories here. Some sections don't have lots of parking, but the park is huge (and green). The Japanese garden was operational (I didn't feel the need to go in to enjoy the park). I don't know if the zoo was open because I didn't check. Some driveways circle back around to give you another chance to find your people. You might get lost, but once you find your family, it becomes worth it. Saw people playing volleyball and football.
Zoo is pretty run down. But we always bring the kids here to bbq, enjoy the water area and the playground. Always very nice and a ton of shade.
The bathrooms are easily accessible to the many groups that were there. Also they are clean. Nice playground. Wheelchair accessible. Very clean. I would definitely think about having my party there in the outside and covered areas.
Brought my two little granddaughters here as a reward and also to get/keep them out of the house. We went all over the park and looked at the parks, the ponds, the water park area and a few other places. Chose not to check out the zoo, as you never really know what they are going to have for animals.
Mickey Grove Regional Park is full of good memories for my family. This past Mother's Day was no exception. We found a comfortable spot to sit near the play area for the grandkids and enjoyed the afternoon. Many other families around us were there as well. It felt happy, relaxed and spacious for all of us.
I love coming to the Japanese garden. It is very calming. Much better when flowers are in bloom but even without the flowers it is relaxing. The rest of the park is a fantastic place to spend quality family time, have a picnic or party or even play Frisbee golf. It also has a museum and zoo. Great family area.
Aside from the Karen, all was good. We checked out the park, the playground and looked at the museum stuff that was outside. The Japanese garden had closed as soon as we got there. The dog loved the squirrels. Great day at the park. We will be returning.
I've been to this park before and it never disappoints. Very peaceful. Cool place to hang out, wander around, breathe, and take a few pictures. I love this park. I need to go more!
Place is huge. Wish we had spent more time there and explored more of it. Parking was $10 but it was a holiday. Will visit again and update afterwards.
A little gem in Lodi. Disc golfing at the place I was married in 1987. Love my life and my community. And still love my Wife...who knew?!?!
Nice place, but zoo was closed early, garden was closed early. Multiple groups of people were paying there annoying music too loud. Was much better and worth the drive/money pre-pandemic.
Amazing park. HUGE. Lots of parking, lots of picnic areas, lots of activities that you can do, and well kept. Will definitely be spending more time here. You do have to pay a parking fee. And a separate fee for the small zoo and maybe the fun town (I think its called) but im not sure because it was closed when we went.
Very nice - small zoo atmosphere. Good for the location and price. Nicely maintained park and benches to eat at after or before enjoying the animals. The fun town was also open and staff were nice. My 2 year old grandson loved it. Had more fun than the Sac Zoo even though there were no dinosaurs.
It's a nice little zoo, just to get out. It's great to take my grandma since she can't walk too far anymore. The zoo is very small and so are the enclosures, but the animals still seem to be happy and healthy. Very nice selection of exotic animals as well. While your at it you check out the Japanese garden.
We came here on a Wednesday afternoon for a little game of baseball & football with our son. We took advantage of the beautiful weather & the calm atmosphere. It gets pretty busy on the week end so the chance of getting time on the field would b zero because of the crowds. This park is kept up nice so I'm real appreciative of that. We will be returning here soon.
Such a beautiful place to visit. Japanese Garden is lovely well kept picturesque. Great for family reunions. Toon town has rides. Slim pickings but fun non the less. Museum. Hall for weddings festivities ect.
I have not only visited for my personal family time, but have delivered many wedding cakes and birthday cakes here. It's so beautiful for hosting events. I even took my pregnancy photos in the Japanese Garden and they turned out stunning!
Its the perfect place to take the kids all day. There's a large playground , the zoo it's great , and not forget the mini fair. Its a great place.
Entry costs a little ( 6 bucks today) well worth it. Great sites and lots of possibilities
There is something for everyone at this park. There is a very small zoo but still fun for little ones. And their amusement park is a little dated. The same as when i was a kid but i love going and just enjoying the japanese gardens and the pond and little splash zone
Was nice, alot of families. Good place to have a get together for a small birthday party, kids have small little water park to play at. Plenty of shade. Nice area to fish as well. Does cost $5 to get in on weekdays, $6 on weekends
Took the kids here for a park day. The giant park structure was better than any in town, and worth the $6 to park.
Love this park! Scenic! Great sunsets! Great disc golf course and community! Love it!
We brought a little picnic to enjoy outside & in the fresh air. It was so peaceful to watch the ducks, squirrels & birds. We also enjoyed watching people play frisbee golf.
Nice clean park with a ton of amenities great place for a birthday party or family picnic. Zoo and amusement park are good for a day as well.
Had a good time. Visited the zoo and saw some animals. It's sad seeing caged animals or animals in enclosures, just tried to be friendly and quiet. Spent less than an hour inside the zoo. Also visited the Japanese garden, it's beautiful this time. Take the time to appreciate nature and the beautiful flower garden.
Keeping up with our theme of getting outside and enjoying life despite contrary opinions and proper protocols during the Coronavirus, yesterday, Thursday March 4, 2921. together me and my dear friend enjoyed a lovely day at Micke Grove Regional Park & Zoo. Entrance to the Park is only $5 per car, and entrance to the Zoo only $5. What a lovely day outside enjoying being out and amongst the delightful landscaped grounds and animals of the zoo. Masks worn in place, and a beautiful day set the stage for a much needed zoo visit. I hadn’t been to this Zoo in at least 20 years, and what a pleasant surprise it was. Lots of changes to the landscape. Just a beautiful layout of the zoo incorporating some old with much of the new. I really enjoyed the accessed aviary of which inside you’ll find birds, ducks of a different feather, and some you’ll recognize with a real water feature. The aviary closes for the day at 3pm. If I didn’t already know that I was at this Zoo, then, I wouldn’t recognize it. I am impressed, and I enjoyed this visit. Relaxed and not busy this day. I will return. It’s convenient to the surrounding areas, and I recommend visiting at any time. Photos and video are with this Review. Thanks.
What an incredible discovery. So many options of things to do, from walking, to a Japanese Garden, a Zoo, Disc Golf, play areas for kids, or just simply sit back and look at the water, the ducks, the sky. This park has it all. We are definitely going to come back again!
I love this place to take my kids such a great outdoor experience there's 4 different parts plenty of seating I'll door area to run by play with your kids take your dog for a walk all around it's a very enjoyable beautiful outdoor experience for the children there are some cute little monkeys at the zoo and a beautiful snow leopard among other animals there hope you enjoy time with your family there i know I sure do
The park is great! Just don't like that they close the whole area at 6!! I'm visiting for business and get done around 3:30 PM so with drive time it makes it hard to fully enjoy the disc golf course when there is a time crunch. Would be nice to have the park close at sunset which is close to 7:30 pm around this time of year.
Very nice disc golf course! In addition to changing pin placements (ABCD), each hole has a gold and silver cage for extra options. Good hole signage, and plenty of trash bins (and many dedicated to recyclables). A few holes border water, and others require waiting for cars or pedestrians to clear. Otherwise, this flat course (excepting one hole) uses trees.
Drove by and decided to go in. Beautiful by far the most relaxing place to be. Playground for kids, pond views. The host was amazing at the entrance. Restrooms and park were very clean! Will definitely be back! ❤❤❤❤❤😁😁

Beautiful park with lots of different areas and activities. I went to visit the Japanese garden and the zoo, which are both stunning and the animals are kept on good habitats. Lots of picnic and recreational space as well. Definitely worth the trip to spend a morning or afternoon (or both!)
Birthday week continues! Took mom down memory lane, this time to Micke Grove Regional Zoo. Had a blast! I didn't want to leave the (big) kitties though.Tickets and entry fee was reasonably priced. Paid 5 dollars to enter park and for three adults paid 15 dollars for tickets.
Huge park, great for gatherings of all sorts. We visited for a wedding in the Japanese garden. Beautiful scenery. Indoor reception area next door was basic but had a stage and the cool air conditioning felt amazing on the hot day! Lots of parking. Pay for parking a bit steep on holidays $10. Normally 5 or 6 I think.
My daughter loved the zoo. Wish fun town would have been open though. Picnic areas and splash area were great
I am impressed by the number and diversity of animals at the MG Zoo! We came at opening and saw every animal perfectly. The signage is informative and helpful. I appreciate the emphasis on conservation and education on multiple aspects of the animals. It is clean, inexpensive and fun!
Good park on your way to and from Sacramento to either LA or Yosemite. The entry fee is $6 per car but it's worth it. There are restrooms and lots of benches and shades to take a break/have lunch or snacks. The area is pretty huge and right on/near Hwy 99. They also have nice fountain and a small zoo ( which has it’s own entry fee I believe ). There are tracks near the parry on the back sided near zoo so you may see a freight train pass by too. I recommend it if you are planning a break/stop on your way or even for a picnic.
Good regional park. The entry fee is $6 per car on weekends but it's worth it. There are lot of shaded picnic areas. There is a Japanese garden but it closes at 1pm. The area is pretty huge and right on/near Hwy 99. They have a water fountain and pond , multiple kids play area, and a small zoo ( which has it’s own entry fee ). There are train tracks on the back side of the park near the zoo so you may see a freight train pass by too. I would recommend it if you are planning a break/stop on your way or just for a picnic.
I love this place! It's so peaceful and i don't feel like I'm in Stockton at all. I only paid the parking fee which was $5. There is another fee for the zoo, but I'm not sure how much that is. I wen to the Japanese Garden and it was so lovely. There were tons of coy fish and so much greenery. It really is a nice place to relax, listen, and walk around. The place is huge and is very well kept!
A true and one of a kind experience of San Joaquin County and its natural environment. Not many places like this in the world, yet alone in California. From recreational activities to history and museums, MGRP is a perfect place for hanging out with loved ones or used as a purposeful outing as a class, passion or even as a date.
Beautiful spacious area. You have to pay to enter but it's only about $6 a car and you could easily spend the whole day. Plenty of grassy areas to relax or play games, disc golf course, and the zoo (extra small charge) is a fun way to spend an hour or two.
I photographed a wedding here. The park is beautiful and clean. Plenty of space for the bride and groom to take photos without people in the background.
Your GPS may lead you to a service entrance, so just make sure you follow the signs for the Zoo/park entrance. It is $5 for entry and if you are going to the zoo, that is a separate entrance fee as well. The park has several playgrounds as well as covered areas that you can reserve. These covered areas typically have picnic tables, a restroom, horseshoe pit, and a playground nearby. There is also a few areas that are shaded and have a bbq pit for smaller parties. The park area is generally quiet and very well shaded. They also do have a water splash pad for kids.
I've been coming here since I was a kid , feels great to be able to bring my son and niece here to share in my childhood memories.❤️ Many cool animals to see , also they have a Japanese garden, and 3 other play grounds you will have to pay 5 dollars for parking but that will get you into all the playgrounds and Japanese garden but the entrance fee to zoo is 5 dollars and kids under 2 are free. I highly recommend this and don't forget your hand sanitizer enjoy 😍🤟
Great place to play disc golf. Bring kids to the small zoo, perfect size for young children. Japanese garden is relaxing and visit the coy pond. Multiple play areas for kids too.
Had a wonderful outing at the Historical Societies Festival of Trees event today. Crafts, beautifully decorated trees, great crafted gifts and food trucks. Good times.
The zoo was a nice quiet experience except for the unmonitored children who were screaming. I was surprised zoo staff didn't flock to the source of the noise. Beware, if someone was actually being eaten/attacked/annoyed, help is slow to react. Jokes aside, the zoo was very calming, green, animals all looked healthy and well taken care of. The snow leopard as well as the Bob cat were very active. I can't wait for better weather since it was sprinkling and some older animals were tucked away to keep their bones from aching.
