The Oakland Zoo has been serving the community since 1922 in locations all across Oakland, finally settling in Knowland Park. Learn about our history and our success in growing the Zoo from a small personal collection to the gem of the East Bay.

Oakland Zoo is the perfect destination for a day trip with your family. Learn about wildlife conservation, see amazing animals, or attend one of our many interactive and educational programs.
