Our Day At The Fresno Chaffee Zoo!

Since this year has been a pretty difficult one (you can read why here), we decided to have a day filled with family fun, so we headed to Fresno to see some family and enjoy a day with some pretty amazing animals.

 

If you’ve never been to the Fresno Chaffee Zoo, I highly recommend it. This was my first time going, and to be honest I wasn’t expecting it to be super nice. When my husband and I lived in Fort Worth, TX we got spoiled by their zoo, it’s ranked in the top 5 zoos in the United States.

 

When entering the zoo there is a rather large park area, perfect for our picnic lunch! There were some school groups there for end of the year parties, but it really didn’t take away from our experience. The zoo is big enough to handle pretty large amounts of people.

Our favorite activity was feeding the giraffes. It only costs $2.00 to feed them, and well worth the memories and money. My daughter couldn’t get over the fact that their tongues are black… so funny.

There are lots of places to take great pictures. Here we have my daughter and her cousin sitting inside of a hippos mouth, so of course their mouths had to be opened wide! 🙂

I just LOVE the gorilla poses by my daughter and husband! Anyways, I hope you plan a trip their soon. The price for admission isn’t bad at all.

 

There is a $5 parking fee when you enter the park.

 

Park Admission:

Fresno Chaffee Zoo Members: FREE
Adult (ages 12 – 61): $7.00
Children (ages 2 – 11) & Seniors (62+): $3.50
Children (1 year and under): FREE

 

We brought a picnic lunch in our cooler, so come lunch time we received a stamp on our hand and exited the zoo. Found a picnic table near our cars and enjoyed a wonderful lunch. There are several shade trees and the weather was spectacular! Enjoy your day at the zoo 🙂
