Riverview Park and Zoo, Peterborough

Take the whole family out for a stroll through Riverview Park and Zoo. The zoo features over 48 species in a large park area packed with activities for kids and adults alike. Walking trails lead the way through the exhibits, and afterwards the kids can enjoy the splash pads while you try your hand at some frisbee golf. A miniature train ride offers a fun alternative to walking around the park, and the vibrant gardens are perfect for an outdoor picnic.
