Micke Grove Zoo:
Honoring the Past, Securing the Future

Micke Grove Zoo has long been considered a crown jewel within the San Joaquin County park system. However, over a period of years, the Zoo has lost some of its luster. Though still a favorite of many County residents, Micke Grove Zoo has suffered from inadequate funding and outdated facilities. Loss of accreditation, a failed Master Plan, and multiple departmental reorganizations have further compounded the challenges for this County-owned facility.
