Santa Barbara Zoo
Lions and Giraffes!


We take our family to the zoo regularly and have a yearly membership. It has always been a life long dream of mine to become a member of the Zoo so that I could visit my beloved animals whenever I had a free weekend.  And thankfully the Santa Barbara zoo has helped me come full circle with that dream.  My family visits the Zoo as often as once a month.  Our membership more than pays for itself. 

We love to ride the zoo train.  It travels throughout the zoo giving you a close up of the lions and other animals.  You also get views of the natural beauty of Santa Barbara.

As an artist I can appreciate the art that is embedded throughout the zoo including murals and sculptures.  My kids love to climb on the bronze life-size statues of the turtle.  The bronze baby elephant gives them a pretend ride that they always enjoy. 

For fifty cents you can feed the farm animals, sheep and goats.  And for three dollars you can feed the giraffes.  Your three dollars gets you two cookies.   As large as they are they are the most gentle creatures they just stick out their long tongues and scoop their deliciously nutritious cookies out of your hands.  It may seem like a lot of money for 2 cookies but that money goes right back into the zoo's programs.  And those are memories your family will never forget. 

No matter how old you are the Santa Barbara Zoo will satisfy the curiosity in you.  Its always fun to visit, so mark your calendar and if you are a resident, become a member!
