A neat little spot in Hayward. Great for kids parties or a half-day trip. The facility is clean, but a bit older. Makes you wonder how places like this would do if they had more funding. I would be a happy little eagle, that's for sure!

Great place to take young kids. I am an adult and I really liked it. My sisters and I had a great time. It is like a park but with an exhibit of animals. We loved the Coyote, he came out from hiding when he saw us looking. Very adorable.

Great place. We rented a picnic area for my son’s birthday. Reserving was a simple phone call and easy to do. The area is nice, the outdoors is great. Lots of animals to see, and the staff is outstanding. We are certainly coming back to this place.
