The Orange County Zoo is a wonderful place for children and adults to come and learn about the fascinating wildlife of the Southwestern United States. Many of the zoo’s residents come to them injured, abandoned, orphaned, or as confiscated pets and not able to be released back into the wild. Some of the animals you can expect to see at the zoo include black bears, mountain lions, beavers, bald eagles, and more.
Located at 1 Irvine Park Road, Orange, CA 92869, the zoo provides its visitors the opportunity not just to view the animals but to learn about them, as well. The zoo offers its visitors the option of cellular audio tours which allows you to hear interesting facts about the animals and how they came to be at the zoo. The cell phone tours are free and just another way for you to become more aware and engaged in protecting and knowing more about the life that is all around us.
The zoo hosts regular events and programs that allow visitors to learn and have fun while doing it. These programs help teach about the importance of all living things, no matter how great or small. And they are a great way to get the kids out of the house and to interact with other children, as well as the world around them.
The zoo also has a petting zoo which lets visitors get up close and personal with domestic sheep, goats, pot-bellied pigs, and other animals safe for interactions. You can also purchase grain for feeding the animals.
The Orange County Zoo is a part of the massive and beautiful Irvine Regional Park which has numerous other attractions and sights to see. The Irvine Park Railroad is sure to delight the little ones with train rides through the park. And there are also pony rides right next to the train station.
