Oakland Zoo
  9777 Golf Links Rd., off Hwy. 580, in Knowland Park.  Fee.  No pets.  The Malayan sun bear exhibit here is the largest in the U.S.  You can visit them right now in their truly spectacular enclosure via webcam.  Naturalistic habitats mix several animals together.  The Skyride chairlift offers a good view of the outstanding African Veldt enclosure, with its watering hole for giraffes and vultures, and is the only way to view the bison and tule elk.  Kids love the Children’s Zoo, with its grassy petting area for goats and sheep and its awesome fruit bat exhibit, and a kiddie ride area outside the zoo entrance includes a roller coaster, carousel, and the Outback Express train ride through Wild Australia.  More.
