The Santa Fe Community College Teaching Zoo was created in 1970 and covers 10 acres of land on the west end of the SFCC campus.

To reach the Santa Fe Zoo, set your GPS unit for the intersection of NW 83rd St and North Road or 3000 NW 83rd St., Gainesville, FL 32606.

Then turn west on North Road and follow the signs to the zoo which lead to a student parking lot on the left just a few steps from the zoo entrance. The parking is free and plentiful since SFCC is primarily a commuter school.

Visitors are welcome at the Santa Fe Teaching Zoo every day of the week from 9 AM to 2 PM. The admission fees are $5 for adults and $4 for children or seniors. Sante Fe students, faculty, staff and children under 3 are admitted free of charge.
