Really close to Amtrak station so we took the train instead of driving. The kids loved the whole adventure of it. Lots of animals to feed and pet. The animals appeared well cared for and the place was tidy. Believe it or not, the dried corn pit was a HUGE hit. Really great sensory experience. Hard to get the kids to leave it. I wasn't sure we would stay long, but I ended up having to drag them away to make sure we made our return train.

Went mid week in the late morning. Not crowed at all. Weekends are a bit crazy.

Zoomars has excellent staff who are patient & friendly with the kids and animals. We have taken the grandsons, 7 & 10 who still enjoy the "panning for gold."

It's a great place for younger children. Not a huge selection of animals, but it was still quite fun. Everyone there was super nice!

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. Residents range from gregarious goats, sweet sheep and potbellied pigs to an exotic emu, humpbacked zebu cows and curious llamas who mingle with 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 Little Tikes Playground to the rustic Miner's Gulch where panning the water reveals rare treasures like fool's gold and 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 South America to help save endangered species. In 2005, she used her knowledge to take over the Jones Farm, expanding its pens and transforming its brand to Zoomars Petting Zoo.

Franks is joined by a well-trained staff of zookeepers and wranglers who share her vision for teaching kids about animals through hands-on interactions—and the shepherding of mammals and birds.
