The Santa Ana Zoo opened in 1952 and has at least 50 monkeys, a rain forest, endangered species, an aviary, an electrical train and a children’s zoo. There is plenty to see and do. Visit the Crean Family Farm where you can peek through farm doors and learn about life on an Orange County farm while you touch and feed the animals.
Hop on the Zoofari Express and travel throughout the zoo for a scenic ride. Visit the Conservation Carrousel, where children learn about the value of environmental conservation through the preservation of endangered animals while on the carousel.
