About Happy Hollow Zoo

While Happy Hollow Park and Zoo is fun for all ages, it focuses on children from ages 2-10. The California accredited zoo offers some rare and endangered animals but also offers a petting zoo with llamas, goats, guinea pigs and miniature horses. Some other animals you can see are meerkats, jaguar, monkeys, macaws, ducks and owls. The zoo offers play areas, children’s rides, puppet and marionette shows and special events.

This San Jose zoo offers a look at animal hospitals through Doc’s Critter Care. Here, guests can see indoor and outdoor hospital areas. One of the play areas, Lemur Woods Exhibit, is located along the lemur exhibit so children can watch the lemurs as they play.

There are also family and children’s rides at Happy Hollow Park and Zoo. Some of these include Kiddie Swings, Mini Putts, Carousel and a train ride.
