Fodor's Review

Tree-shaded Roeding Park is a place of respite on hot summer days; it has picnic areas, playgrounds, tennis courts, horseshoe pits, and a zoo. A train, little race cars, paddleboats, a carousel, and other rides for kids are among the amusements at Playland. Children can explore attractions with fairy-tale themes at Rotary Storyland.

Fresno Chaffee Zoo. The zoo's most striking exhibit is its tropical rain forest, where you'll encounter exotic

birds along paths and bridges. Elsewhere at the zoo live tigers, sloth bears, sea lions, tule elk, camels, elephants, and siamang apes. The facility has a high-tech reptile house and there's a petting zoo. Roeding Park, 894 W. Belmont Ave., east of Hwy. 99, 93728. 559/498–5910. www.fresnochaffeezoo.org. $7. Apr.–Oct., daily 9–6; Sept.–Oct., closes at 4 weekdays; Nov.–Mar., daily 9–4.
