I have walked the park so many times, and it's always fun to watch the animals and the people. It's great in the summer and the winter, but fall is probably my favorite season. The Zoo is beautiful with the leaves changing color, etc..

Mixed feelings after my visit, the zoo generally looks tired and in need of investment, no paper maps or times and many enclosures look old with limited signage. I was lucky to see the lions being fed (you are very close!) together with the tiger...More

This was a lovely zoo to go to with our nephews. I'm a huge animal fan and none of the conditions at this park gave me reason to question them. All the money seemed to go to the animals.

This zoo has a good cross-section of animals from across Canada and around the world. Distances between sections can be demanding for those with mobility problems, so be prepared. Food services are pretty much burgers and hotdog style, with a few more elaborate choices.

There were no redeeming qualities to be found for this location. I have to agree with one of the previous reviewers that called out the very small amount of cars in the parking lot. I hesitate to call it a zoo. I will list the...More
