Master Plan

The Charles Paddock Zoo is currently renovating and upgrading the animal exhibits into more naturalistic habitats to assure the best care and well being for our animals. Involved in several conservation and education programs, the Zoo has a commitment to wild animal propagation and management within the Zoo and in the wild, committed to be “Your Central Coast Conservation Center.” The Charles Paddock Zoo continues to be one of the best-valued, community supported, high quality, and family-oriented recreation destinations on the Central Coast.
