  • The Magnetic Hill Zoo is a fun place to bring your family/friends on a nice summer day. They have all kinds of animals and they even have cold treats for sale. They sell candy, and they sell drinks and ice cream. You can go pet the goats, You can feed certain animals as well. There's a gift shop you can go to on your way out.
  • It keeps getting better. Great place for the whole family. Lots of animals and the enclosures keeps getting better. Really seems like the well being of the animals is important here. The playground is a big hit as well!
  • We go to the zoo at least once a year. There have been some amazing renovations done at the zoo over the past couple of years. It's a well planned layout, the animals are usually easy to spot and are often quite playful. I would recommend to anyone visiting the Moncton area.

  • Absolutely fantastic zoo. Saw several animals we've never seen before and the goats wouldn't let us near the food, kept nibbling us when we went to get it from the feeder! Amazing playground right in the middle of the park. Beautiful and well kept, and the animals are definitely well taken care of. Washrooms are well taken care of as well. Definitely coming back!
