At the heart of the park, bark hello to California sea lions and relax on the terrace. Three daily feeding demonstrations for the Zoo’s noisiest residents make the sea lion pool one of our most popular attractions.

What to See and Do

Whether they’re high-fiving their keepers, showing off their dives, or catching fish on the fly, Stella and Beebe love to impress a crowd.

While the sea lions chow down, zookeepers demonstrate how they check the animals’ health and give other routine care.

Overlooking the sea lion pool, the Zoo’s café offers indoor and outdoor tables and makes a relaxing pitstop.
