I've been going to Oakland Zoo sence I was a small child, being born and raised in Oakland an now I've been taking my children sence they were little. They are all grown up and still we take family trips there atleast 3 to 4 times a year. An as a single morher all their lives, it has always been a Great inexpensive way to spend the day together and I've been going there for over 40 YRS. Now an watching it grow and get better and better every year! I would recemendall family's to try it at least once a year.
