Santa Ana Zoo

Santa Ana Zoo has something new! “Animal Crackers” from Heimlich’s Chew Chew Train ride!

Stacy and I got to check it out and we had a great time! We even did a live broadcast, check it out in our Instagram IGTV! The giant-sized animal crackers are placed along the Santa Ana Zoo’s Zoofari Express Train ride for all to see after passing by the turtle pond in the Farm area of the Zoo.

The Zoofari Express Train Ride plays an integral role in raising the funds needed for all the special projects and improvements going on at the Santa Ana community Zoo including educational programs, breaking ground on new animal habitats, supporting important conservation initiatives, introducing new rides and upgrading service facilities for guests.

Stacy loves this zoo also because of the playground and the Conservation Carrousel and the new Fifty Monkey Ferris Wheel!

Open Wednesday – Sunday from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm, the Santa Ana Zoo participates in conservation efforts to save local and South American species, including frogs, turtles, and lion tamarins.
