What is Zoomars

Zoomars is a family owned and operated petting zoo located in the historic Los Rios district in San Juan Capistrano. There is no shortage for family fun here, with over 100 animals, 6 attractions, activities and playgrounds. This is truly such a unique experience to visit! Zoomars also hosts birthday parties which I think would be an absolute hit for any kid age!


Kids will love feeding and petting a variety of animals. You can start small feeding the guinea pigs and bunnies in the enclosed area. The staff at Zoomars is extremely helpful, friendly and educational so you and your children will feel right at ease playing with these sweet animals. The whole park has a very outdoor farm feel to get you in the right spirit. There is also a goat and sheep pen where you can feed, pet and brush these animals! The list just keeps going, my favorite thing to do is feeding apples to the alpacas, I can’t get over their extremely soft fur, and everyone gets a chuckle at the noises they make!


Every member of the family will have fun here, there is so much to do! Zoomars offers pony rides for children ages 3-10 years old. There are also train and tractor rides that my son loved so much! If you have a construction lover like I do, get them a ticket to ride the mini electric excavator, it won’t be something they forget! To top it off, try your luck at mining for gold! And of course, Zoomars has a fantastic western themed playground for children to enjoy!
