I went there on one of the last beautiful fall day. They have mainly local animals. Black bear, lynx wolves, caribous, artic foxes, but also all the birds, frogs, and snakes. I had a great time, and spent about 2-3 hrs. It is really a...More

Three adults and a senior. $62. Felt quite a bit overpriced for what we saw. Signage lacking, and few staff and volunteers to explain the exhibits and how to get the most from our visit. Value was about half of what we paid.

An easy 20-30 minute drive from the center of Montreal. At a leisurely pace we were able to explore fully in 2.5 hours. The animals are comfortable with visitors, so it gave us the chance to see them up close in a fairly natural setting....More

Located about 30 minutes west of Montreal. All the animals are from the Saint Lawrence Valley. They are in natural habitats. You stroll through nature while viewing the animals. Beautiful and rewarding.

We went on a beautiful day, not too hot, which is good, because in higher heat, the animals are hiding in the shade and you won't see many of them. The zoo was nice, with a decent mix of animals, however the pathways were very...More

Had a WONDERFUL visit here with a small group. Bit of a challenge to find; once you are off the Trans-Canada highway turn left at the T and look for the sign on the right that I missed. Careful, it's a one and one-half lane...More
