The Sacramento Zoo is a zoo located in William Land Park in Sacramento, California. It opened on June 2, 1927 with 40 animals. At that time it occupied 4.2 acres, which remained the case until the early 1960s when the zoo expanded to its current 14.3 acres. As of December 2004 they had 609 animals on site!
On April 6, 2007 a new exhibit featuring six penguins opened to the public. The day prior, Mayor Heather Fargo and other guests were dressed in black and white to greet the new arrivals who are on loan for the "one year bash".
