A small zoo, with a surprisingly varied selection of animals. A pleasant surrounding and a nice walk to take with kids. Nearby hotels offer discounts for admission for guests. One downside, a gravel/sand parking lot makes for a very dusty experience entering and leaving.

In an area of the island of Montreal in the middle of fields and forests, come and enjoy a great little zoo with local animals. Very cool.

The zoo is nice and fun! In the heat, like any zoo, it's hard to see the animals because they are hiding. The kids enjoyed the turtles and squirrels of all types. Fun activity close by without going to far. Open year round also :)

Drove from Ottawa to Montreal to visit this dump. Should have stayed home. 50 bucks entry for my wife and son to stare into a bunch if empty enclosures. Decrepit and depressing. Skip this place altogether and head for the Biodome instead.More

Robert J's answer is very appropriate. Avoid very hot - and wet days, and earlier in the daytime also
