I took my daughter, who has autism, to this zoo while on holidays. Super nice surprise. There were many animals to see. Staff were good. We had a nice walk in the shade. I'd recommend it.

A wide variety of animals that you can see up close. You can buy feed to let the kids experience feeding certain varieties of animals. The petting cage of goats is a huge hit.

An enjoyable experience with "wild" animals in captivity! Our Grandkids had fun watching these animals up close...the staff was very friendly. It's a family activity that is close to home!

Let’s clear the air to start with. I’m neither a veterinarian, nor a naturalist, but as far as I could tell, these are well-cared for animals in mostly very large and natural enclosures. I was very positively impressed. It was a beautifully clean, well-managed, well-maintained...More

We’d planned to go to the Toronto Zoo, but it was raining in Toronto and Elmvale was almost on our way, so we headed there not knowing what to expect. The differences between the zoos were huge. Right from the free parking in Elmvale to...More

They have very large enclosures. Especially the giraffes. We were not allowed to pet or handle any cubs. I do not believe this is a 'breeding zoo' but some of the animals do have babies.
