Go in walking shoes and be rested before you go. It is not a large zoo but it is well maintained.

The zoo is small which makes it perfect to see in an hour or two. It makes for a fun mini-day trip and the staff is very friendly and willing to answer any and all questions you or your children may have. Would definitely recommend going at least once. Great alternative to going to the movies and getting your kids away from their video games & computers!

Perfect zoo for younger children. Quiet (except for the monkeys) and cool. The students overseeing the zoo were friendly and very informative. We will definitely visit again. PS - the monkets were our favorite!!

The SF College teaching zoo is very nice. It is small, well kept and the students that were working there were very helpful, pleasant and friendly. There is a play area there for small children. I think it is a perfect place to take your toddler or small child as well as a very nice place for adults to wander and enjoy being outdoors. The grounds are pretty and well shaded.

we had a good time but I was a little disappointed in the number of exhibits that were closed and the fact that they were cleaning cages on a Saturday when we were trying to go through the zoo. Every one was very nice

Generations of animal lovers come together to explore the winding trails of the Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo, where more than 75 species inhabit displays that stretch across 10 acres of naturally wooded terrain. Run by a full-time staff, as well as Santa Fe College students, the zoo is home to a diverse collection of both native and exotic creatures, headlined by a lineup of family favorites that includes bald eagles, white-throated Capuchin monkeys, and small-clawed otters. While visiting, zoo-goers can lock eyes with endangered beasts or, instead of diving into a mall fountain to inspect the coins, study actual water-dwelling critters wading through the amphibian habitats. Sawdust trails make the zoo easy to navigate for wheelchairs and strollers, and an onsite playground entertains young'uns during breaks from uninhibited discovery.
