Have always loved going here. IDK if it was due to budget cuts or what, but it was .... shabby, for lack of a better word. Unkempt. Like a Grand Estate that had fallen on hard times. We will go back. We always do. ❤ $6.00 per car to enter gate. Maybe 4 minutes or so waiting in line
The zoo was awesome! As far as the exhibits go, there are a few that seem lacking. The animals that are there, seem to be in great spirits, which is always nice to see! It is about an hour worth of fun and you'd be entertained enough. The cafe is gone, so be sure to get food before you go! There is an A&W not to far out. The price was acceptable and not exorbitantly priced. You will have to pay for the park entrance. Then pay for the zoo. So keep that in mind, too! You'll pay more getting food somewhere for the family before you go. There are restrooms and a few vending machines with water, sodas, and candy. Have fun out there! 4 stars due to food being so far out and not knowing beforehand. Closure of food wasn't posted anywhere. Which got us behind about 45 minutes.
I was impressed with this zoo for being in a small town like Lodi, there was enough to see. Very clean and friendly staff. No concessions, so bring a picnic and enjoy the park as well.
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.
I didn't go to the zoo. Just the Japanese garden. It is beautiful and relaxing. I went to the zoo a number of years ago and remember it being perfect for small kids. It's not a huge zoo so not as much to see but the animals seem to be well kept and the staff was nice.
A beautiful public park that is clean and well maintained. A small, cute zoo, Garden and multiple playgrounds and picnic areas. Love it here.
Best area for outdoor party. There are a lot for the kids and adult. Their Japanese Garden is beautiful and the fun land is OK. The only thing is their Zoo need some.more.animals..
Great place to visit, especially with kids. My 2 and 4 year olds loved all the animals. The highlights were eagles, vultures, turtles, monkeys, gorillas, zebras, tigers, lions, giraffes, elephants and hippos. Parking was sufficient. It's big, it takes at least 2-3 hours to walk around the whole zoo. There is also a 5 minute mini train ride for children. Overall a great experience. I felt like there weren't many places to buy drinks or snacks which we expected. Nevertheless, two thumbs up!
I loved this little zoo! Very cute animals that appear well taken care of with enough room to roam. The cafe is closed so bring food. It’s located on a huge park as well with lots of grass, restrooms and play structures. The kids loved the zoo and it was quiet, not a lot of people.
Very small but cute, thank you for helping all those amazing animals. I love animals and you widened my horizonts, it was a first time I encounter Fossa. Thank you 🌹💖
Nice little zoo. The turtles, Golden Eagle, monkeys, Lemurs and Snow Leopard were very cool. Fair prices.
A quiet zoo. Nice to get out of the house and take the kids. Low price to get in.
I came here with my daughter for her first time at the zoo. It is a small zoo, so our trip only lasted 1.5 hours. But it is definitely worth checking out, and maybe have a picnic at the beautiful park next to the zoo entrance. I do wish they had a cafe or some sort of snacks/food stand. It is very inexpensive compared to other zoo's, so we will definitely be coming back but this time with other people.
I love that they have improved the living quarters for all the animals. The cages are clean and the animals seem content. It's much nicer than it was years ago. Many improvements have been done and the park is a really nice place to take friends and family for a nice picnic, enjoy the zoo, the gardens are beautiful and they have kiddy rides. I love Micke Grove Park and Zoo!!
If you need Something to do in the stockton area. This is one thing I can recommend. It is a cute little Zoo with a good amount of animals most of the animals have been there for a while and are rescues.
Lots of animals and its very very affordable. 5 dollar parking and zoo is 5 dollars per adult. Its a very nice zoo makes for a fun day.
A great park I love to take the kids to. $6 entrance fee is totally worth it for multiple play structures and clean restrooms. Lots of park space and covered picnic tables to use and we always have a great time. The zoo is great for animal loving kids. The animals are usually out too!
At the time I was there, not many people were around. The zoo, even though small compared to Sac Zoo, was very exciting for our 3 young great nieces. It was very interesting for myself as well with animals and displays they have. It was a great time for my family.
They are now open to the public, but the zoo and playgrounds are still closed. My family walked through the Japanese garden and had a picnic, still an enjoyable park.
So much fun great time seeing the animals masks required zoo staff are so friendly
Lonely for the most part, esp after hours when they close early now because of covid. Barely any life too it, not like the stories I've heard before. Funtown is deserted. It's Pretty still, but lifeless.
This is good for a small day trip! My children range from 10 to 1 yr old. We all found something we enjoyed here. Not the biggest zoo but still very cool. Take the kids for a hr then off to one of the 5 play structures in the park! Will go again!
Very small, but cute. Pretty reasonable at $5 adult and $3 kids, but I wouldn't pay much more. We did the entire Zoo (at a leisure pace) in under 1 hour.
The animals are well cared for and fed. Some of the exhibits even have little stuffed animals with the animals for comfort, we found it quite adorable.
Really a great place to take the kids for a couple of hours. Kept the kids interested with all there was to see. Not a big place but that's what gives it its charm.
Fun little zoo for little children. Not a big park but a cute one. Alot of stuff was closed (the amusement park and food stands) but still fun for a couple of hours.
Small simple zoo. Not your normal animals but still interesting. From start to finish takes about an hour or so. Place is clean ans staff enjoyed answering questions.
Great for toddlers. Nice assortment of animals, small and easy to walk thru, and the park grounds are expansive and gorgeous!
This a great place to have fun with your family or friends. There is a small zoo, you can easily walk around allover in 30 mnts. But the park is huge very nice and clean. And it's cheap to get in. 5 dollars by car 🚗
There were quite a few animals to observe and we found them surprisingly active and accessible to view. There are lots of shady areas and the grounds are very pleasant to walk.
It was nice seeing the lil bit of animals they have. Back in the day they had all kinds of animals. But I know they have a budget and it is very low so it can't accommodate any more animals. Just nice being outdoors..
Nice, cute little zoo inside Micke Grove Park. Great for smaller children. Great for getting walking steps in and seeing animals that have been rescued and nursed to better health. I viewed the entrance fee as a small donation to help keep this small zoo open for more generations.
Birthday week continues! Had a blast helping mom relive her childhood memories. The people working there were nice and helpful, entry fee and ticket fee were reasonably priced. To enter I paid 5 dollars and for tickets for three adults I paid 15. Oh beware the strolling birds!
Perfect day. Nice breeze. Most animals showed their faces eventually. Not too crowded. Masks are required. Just a fun few hours at the zoo and the Japanese Tea Gardens.
It was a great place to take my 1 year old daughter to. It was her first time at a zoo habitat. So she had to get used to it at first but loved seeing the birds and lemurs. We plan on going again so she can enjoy them more!
I went recently beginning of May-2021. It was really cute zoo not very big. It has cute animals and my mini me really liked it. She really enjoyed the turtles and bird area. We also busted the japanese gardens which we both had fun walking through trails and enjoying the beauty of the gardens. Well worth the price of parking.. the zoo cost 8$ for both of us. We are required to wear masks and keep social distancing. Safe and cute place. Def recommend
It's not what it used to be. The real little ones would enjoy it. No petting zoo. No big animals except a leopard. 1 short lap to see it all in about 30 min. Or less.
Awesome place to go for people of all ages. But they need some more entertaining animals. But I recommend you go.
Small zoo with several nice animals on display. Great place to take the family for an hour, but you won't need more time than that. Right now many displays are empty or under construction so not much to see at all. No gift shop or cafe open, which would be a huge improvement when visiting on a hot day and in need of a refreshment. It would also be nice to be able to pick up a souvenir or two for the little ones. If you want a short relaxing walk for the kids, this is a great place, but if you are looking for a full zoo, I would highly recommend Fresno, Oakland, or Sacramento.
Not too bad pretty decent for the price. Wish they would hurry up and open the other side though. And possibly add more food options to choose from. From the sounds of it this is a great place to take toddlers. From the looks of it they will enjoy it guaranteed. There's more than just a zoo is the rest of the park with plenty of playgrounds to choose from and also a beautiful garden you can enjoy
Almost no one there. The kids and I basically had the whole zoo to ourselves and had a blast! Understandably, a few of the exhibits were closed, as well as the snack bar, due to the heat and the pandemic. A bird laid an egg, the parrots had a whistle off with the boys, and we met a cute squirrel who happens to be the master of parkour. Nice outing if your looking to walk and talk
Micke Grove Park is a really nice place. The Zoo doesn't have many animals any longer. I think the type of animals that's still there are best for the small zoo. The eagle needs to be placed in a Much Larger enclosure than what it's in and more water misters during the hot months, in my opinion.
It's nice but on the small side😗 It's a nice place to take children to get them acquainted with some animals of the world on a small scale. The zoo is in a nice location in the park. I'll be back again with my g-kids & gg-kids😊
Very small zoo. Several enclosures are empty or under construction. The fencing they use makes it hard to see the animals or get pictures. There is no gift shop or food place. The animals that were visible seemed happy and healthy though.
Micke grove park is HUGE and very very nice. Great place to take your kids to visit the zoo and to walk around and perfect place to bbq for small or huge parties. Plenty of places to chose from. Five star
A true hidden gem located inside the Micke Grove Park. Micke Grove Zoo is very charming and offers a cozy experience, where you can enjoy the beautiful surroundings and focus more on the animals in each exhibit without being rushed through. The zoo features species from Madagascar, South America, and some really cool & fun native species as well. All the animals and their exhibits look well cared for, and clean. Admission is very affordable.
Sometimes the parking is limited depending on the events. $5.00 entry is fair with ability to come in & out with your ticket. Lots of spaces to rent for parties, covered with tables, benches and BBQ. The only bad part was the bathroom ran out of toilet paper and we couldn't find anyone or a # to call. That could be helpful.😉
Beautiful well kept zoo. Very small maybe 20 minutes to get through the entirety. It's a great place for small children. Animals are very visible due to the size of their cages.
