Micke Grove Zoo
Micke Grove Zoological Society

Micke Grove Park and Zoo were a gift to the people of San Joaquin County from local philanthropists William and Julia Harrison Micke. Their legacy lives on in the beautiful oak forested park that opened in 1938 as well as its many improvements that continue to evolve. Many millions of visitors have enjoyed the Micke’s wonderful gift. Micke Grove Park also features a Japanese Garden, San Joaquin County Historical Museum, Fun Town at Micke Grove Amusement Park and picnic shelters in a beautiful setting.

Micke Grove Zoo is a five-acre zoo with amphibians, mammals, birds, reptiles and invertebrates.The zoo that exists today is very different from the zoo that first opened its gates in 1957. Today, the collection of Micke Grove Zoo emphasizes uniqueness and quality over size and quantity with a concentration on the welfare of the animal ambassadors that live here.

The Micke Grove Zoological Society is a non-profit organization serving to benefit the Micke Grove Zoo by providing educational opportunities and fundraising.
