In operation since 1907, The Sequoia Park Zoo has long been considered one of the most important cultural facilities in the area. The Zoo is committed to providing a high quality facility that offers not only the care of a variety of animals, but also an opportunity for visitors to experience a greater appreciation of the value and diversity of our planet's life forms.
Highlights of Sequoia Park Zoo include the new Barnyard and Entry Pavilion plus a walk-through aviary. The Barnyard is a kid-friendly place to meet and greet several kinds of farm animals plus explore some of the secrets of our big, beautiful barn. Our walk-through aviary features a natural setting where you can enjoy close encounters with several species of colorful and unusual birds. The new Entry Pavilion includes a classroom, indoor animal exhibits featuring the Secrets of the Forest plus restroom, café and gift shop facilities. Stop by and watch the animal keepers prepare meals for the zoo animals at our new kitchen viewing window!
The Zoo's goals include conservation, education and recreation. The Sequoia Park Zoo is proud to be one of the smallest institutions that has been accredited by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association.
The beauty and genius of a work of art may be reconceived, though its first material expression be destroyed; a vanished harmony may yet again inspire the composer; but when the last individual of a race of living things breathes no more, another heaven and another earth must pass before such a one can be again.
William Beebe, 1906 (one year prior to the beginning of Sequoia Park Zoo)
