Santa Barbara Zoo: Meet Lucky the Penguin

The Santa Barbara Zoo lives up to its slogan, "World's Most Beautiful Zoo." There is no other place in the world to see giraffes and meerkats while overlooking the ocean. The Zoo is a fun, family-friendly place to visit in downtown Santa Barbara. There are play areas for kids and long walking trails for exercise. And, of course, you can't miss Lucky, the penguin with a walking boot.

Before you even get to the Zoo, if you want to save a few dollars, you can park in the parking lot on the other end of Dwight Murphy Park (keep going past the Zoo parking lot on Ninos Drive – free parking will be on the left). Once you arrive, make sure to take note of the feeding times because that is the best time to see the animals.

The Zoo has two upcoming events for spring:

Zoo-to-Do – Volunteer on an improvement project with the Zoo on April 7 and receive lunch and two free Zoo passes.

El Dia del Nino – A day geared toward the celebration of kids – music, performances, food and more.
