  • Wow this is my favorite zoo to visit, friendly people and staff. I love seeing all the animals, especially the baby one cause their so cute. My all time favorite is all the Big Cats including the Bobcat (Jenga) and also Blueberry the Bear. I spent all day taking photos and walking around talking to the animals and owners Gail and Ron and the workers when they had a few minutes. Grounds are looking nice and well kept. Also had supper at the canteen which was good. Had a great day! :)
  • A fantastic zoo with an impressive variety of animals. It's an excellent day trip for families. We usually spend 3 to 4 hours here with our young children, who especially love the pony rides, the swings, and ice cream at the end.
  • There are so many animals to see and watch. My kids love the ponies they can ride.
  • Such a fun place! A nice way to spend a chill day outside:)
  • Awesome zoo for the price. Great for kids. Best zoo in Atlantic Canada.
