Happy Hollow Park & Zoo is a 16-acre facility owned and operated by the City of San José’s Department of Parks, Recreation and?Neighborhood Services and supported in partnership with Happy Hollow Foundation. With 60 animal species, family-friendly rides and attractions, and special events for all ages, Happy Hollow connects people to nature through play.
News & Media Requests
Happy Hollow Park & Zoo does not allow unscheduled media visits inside the facilities. Media and commercial photography inside the Park & Zoo must be accompanied by a permit and or staff escort.
For the privacy of our guests and their overall experience, we also request that media refrain from asking customers for interviews inside the Park & Zoo unless arranged in advance.?
Due to the great amount of routine care needed by our zoo animals, all animal care staff interviews must be scheduled in advance.
Happy Hollow is owned and operated by the City of San Jose. It is the City’s practice to not meet with vendors requesting a meeting for two reasons: 1) We do not have the resources to meet with every vendor who wishes to schedule a sales presentation with us, and 2) Equal and fair treatment would require us to meet with every competitor vying for the City’s business in order to provide the same opportunity. Therefore, the best process for the City is the public competitive solicitation process which is open to all interested parties.
City Departments do not have authority to make purchase commitments, and Departments are instructed to forward all sales calls to Purchasing. Purchasing in turn, suggests that Vendors register on?BidSync.
