Elmvale Jungle Zoo, Elmvale

#2 of 11 in Things to do in Springwater
Greet over 300 animals at Elmvale Jungle Zoo, a family-friendly venue covering a vast area of 10 hectares (25 acres). Starting out in 1967, the zoo has grown from its initial size of only 0.8 hectares (2 acres), when it displayed mainly reptiles and avian species. Today, you have the chance to observe pink flamingos, zebras, lions, giraffes, monkeys, and plenty more living in safe and hygienic conditions. The zoo also doubles up as a petting station, where younger visitors can revel in stroking and feeding a range of farm animals. The zoo's stroller-friendly trails make visits with little ones a breeze.

  • This little Zoo outside of Toronto has got to be one of central Ontario's hidden gems. It has a number of interesting residents that you can get up close and personal with. Never fear, there are also some exotic species here that will easily catch a families eyes and ensure your kids attention is held for the entire visit. The rates are very reasonable and there is a seating area for both meals that one can get from the onsite food vendor or those you have packed yourself.
  • Wow, perfect zoo, I saw so many animals that I have never seen before. And there you feel that all animals are in a good condition and happy. Also they have a beautiful tiger that you can see its picture that I took.
  • Great place to visit. You need at least 3 hours to see all the animals. some animals are really funny and friendly. feel like you are in pet zoo. surely recommend this place if you have kids.
  • It's the perfect size to take everything in. Great for families with young kids. There are shaded areas along the paths which is good for hot sunny summer months
  • This zoo isn't bad if they change a few things. First off please don't use the animals for rides. It's very sad. No animals wants to go in a circle all day for us humans to ride. The animal like the tiger need way more space. They need to be able to run around and go into the water when ever they wish or go in the shade at their own will. Too bad that they treat the animals like this. If they take better care of the animals I would return other wise that was my first n last time with my family. I love animals and I can't support things when they are treated this way. PS one of your monkey looked so depressed...like suicidal. Please help him. He needs a friend please.
