Established in 1907, Sequoia Park Zoo is the oldest zoo in California and one of the smallest accredited zoos in the country. Situated next to the magnificent old-growth redwoods of Sequoia Park, the zoo is truly a jewel in the heart of Eureka.

Zoo Hours

The Sequoia Park Zoo is Temporarily CLOSED

In order to help stop the spread of COVID-19, the Sequoia Park Zoo (Cafe and Gift Shop included) will be CLOSED starting March 17 with a reopening date TBD. Our top priority is to ensure that our critical animal care staff remain healthy and able to care for our Zoo animals. Closing the Zoo to the public will help that goal. Stay tuned for updates and unique social media posts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) to keep you involved in the Zoo right from your home.
