Located on Senter Road in Kelly Park, the Happy Hollow Park & Zoo is a 16-acre amusement park and zoo. It first opened in 1961 and was later renovated and reopened in 2010. Some of the zoo’s exhibits include a petting zoo with a barn, a children’s play area, a puppet theater, and rides for young children.
The park also has an education department, which showcases hands-on interactive exhibits that help visitors to learn about animals. If you are wondering what to do in San Jose with kids, this is a great attraction. There are also classes and camps for children.
The park’s Picnic Basket Restaurant offers sandwiches, salads, entrees, desserts, and drinks. “The Explore and More Store,” a shop located within the zoo, sells clothes, games, unique stuff that makes an easy gift, and toys for kids.
