Happy Hollow Park & Zoo. San Jose, CA

Happy Hollow Park & Zoo, next to Kelley Park in San Jose.  There is alot of new construction here at the zoo.  From a new parking area and bridges opening soon, to new ticket booths, and that is just the outside.  On the inside, there are new play areas, new petting zoos, new play structures, roller coasters for kids, and just about everything!

Happy Hollow

Happy Hollow Park $ Zoo is located at Kelley Parkin San Jose, just off of 280 and 10th Stree, near downtown.  Parking is $10.  Fees are $12.00 for ages 2-69.  70+ is $8.

Kelley Park

One of my favorite exhibits is the Jaguar.  Sometimes it is hard to get her to look at you, and this day I was able to get her to give me a smile.


Gotta love the capybara exhibit.  Today they were just relaxing in the sun.


The crazy Squirrel Monkeys seem to always be getting in to no good!


And of course, Danny the Dragon Ride.

If you are planning on going, dont forget your camera!
