The Animals would love to see you. Come visit us!

The Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary is located at 403 Stafford Street, Folsom, California, in the heart of the City of Folsom. Operating since 1963, the zoo has been the home to hundreds of animals from squirrels and deer to tigers and bears.

Each year the zoo welcomes over 100,000 visitors in a simple and unassuming park like environment. With close to 100 animals and adjacent to Lions Park (featuring tables, BBQ’s and children’s play areas) and the Folsom Valley (mini-scale) Railway, not to mention City Hall, Dan Russell Arena, and the Folsom City Library, we know you and your family will enjoy your visit.
