Parnell Storybook Zoo is a charming farm animal zoo just north of Orange County, in Whittier, CA. You can meet the friendliest pigs, cutest mini horses, goats, rabbits, and more, all for free. It is a very small zoo, so consider it a short visit. There are semi-shaded areas that you could bring a lunch to and picnic. Right behind the zoo you can find a playground, basketball court, and baseball diamonds. We went on a Saturday and parking was a breeze. This is the perfect laid back, hassle free stop for your next family outing.
Daily 10:00 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Parking: Free, on premises
