The Charles Paddock Zoo is a small 5-acre community zoo located in San Luis Obispo County, California, in the City of Atascadero, California. It is the only zoo in the Central Coast area. It is also home to a male Malayan tiger named Menderu.

The Charles Paddock Zoo is home to hundreds of animal species from around the world. Many of the zoo residents are part of globally managed programs to preserve animals and their habitats. The Charles Paddock Zoo is truly dedicated to the conservation of local and exotic species. If you want to engage with some of the rarest animals in the world in a safe and respectful environment, then you will surely want to visit our Zoo. We have so much to offer, including: camps, classes, birthday parties and more!

Help the zoo continue their work by purchasing one or more Dining for Charities half off certificates for one of our many wonderful restaurant, health and beauty, pet or outdoor activity partners. 15% of proceeds in the month of June from the sale of certificates go directly to the zoo. Visit and buy yours today!


Charles Paddock Zoo is located at 9100 Morro Road, Atascadero, CA 93422
