Wedgeforth that the zoo came into being. He was a great animal lover and his love is aptly reflected in the pains he took to set up this great zoo in Balboa Park. It spans 100 acres of area, and has a whopping 4000 animals. The best part is that the animals are given large and natural environments here. And, the best part is that there are continuous improvements and expansions every year. So, the zoo is well-maintained and offers tourists great fun.
