Lots of things for kids to see and do, but many (besides petting the animals) were additional costs. Especially loved petting & holding guinea pigs!

A small petting zoo for younger age children. I think most children over the age of seven or eight would get bored quickly. The facility was clean and the personnel were very accommodating.

Buy the veggies to feed the animals. There are tables to eat lunch. Wear sunscreen it can get hot. Figure out where to park before arriving. We got turned around. Fun little place with a lot of hands on with the animals.

Great venue for the little ones! My grandchildren are ages three and five and they had a fantastic time! I will be taking them back again.

Parking is very slim but that shouldn't damper your visit to Zoomars. The kids had fun in all the activities they had to offer.

Bring your own snacks... And if you want to feed the animals you can purchase a tray of vegetables at the entrance.

From Our Editors

A rustic Spanish-style farm in the heart of San Juan Capistrano that's been standing since 1890 promises more creatures than just the area's famous swallows. The picturesque estate is part of Zoomars?an all-ages petting zoo that's USDA-approved for cleanliness and the place where more than 200 animals call home. The residents range from the familiar to the exotic: goats, sheep, and kunekune pigs mingle alongside exotic emus, zebus, and zebras that greet visitors for pets and feeding. One of the zoo's most popular areas is the guinea-pig patch, where some of the farm's fuzziest and friendliest creatures reside. Zoomars also features family-friendly attractions ranging from a miniature train and pony rides to the newly installed playground with four slides to the rustic Miner's Gulch, where panning the water reveals rare treasures such as gemstones.

Meet the Owner

Owner Carolyn Franks started down the path to animal care in college when she created her own line of dog toys. She soon moved from New Jersey to California where her passion snowballed: developing a full line of pet products, hosting an animal show for kids, running a chain of exotic bird stores, and even traveling to Brazil to learn about animal conservation. In 2005, she used her knowledge to take over the Jones Farm petting zoo, expanding its pens and transforming its brand into Zoomars.

Franks is joined by a well-trained staff of zookeepers and wranglers who share her vision in entertaining kids?and teaching them how to interact with the animals?as they are in caring for and shepherding mammals and birds.
