Oakland Zoo Vehicle Donation Program

The Oakland Zoo has been serving the community since 1922 in locations all across Oakland, finally settling in Knowland Park. Learn about our history and our success in growing the Zoo from a small personal collection to the gem of the East Bay. The East Bay Zoological Society has been operating and managing the Zoo as a non-profit organization for the City of Oakland since 1982.
