    My husband and I went here on a weekday morning. It was a beautiful fall day, and we really enjoyed walking around the lovely trails and viewing the animals. If you don't expect polar bears and pengui...  more »

    I was impressed by how many animals they had at the zoo. Would love to know how they got the animals though and whether or not this a research or rescue farm. If not, the cages could be bigger.  more »

    Signage was terrible couldn't find information good enough to have a good experience. We felt there wasn't many animals to see and no one to ask.  more »

    I love going to the zoo. Took students on a field trip. Lots of animals to check out, a train tour around, gardening area, and much more especially for younger kids. Enjoyed by all, including my 15 teenagers. Also had a gift shop and snack shop.

    Nice zoo with new animals added on a regular basis. Free entry for most of the year except during the summer. They have been adding new features for the last few years and vastly improved the park.

    Really fun place! Large enough and entertaining enough to get you through a morning or an afternoon but not so big you have to dedicate a weekend to it. And for $24 for the family, very reasonably priced. We were glad we took the time to go!

    Always love going to the zoo. It's not a big city zoo but there are plenty of Canadian animals to see. Lots of raptors, some good monkeys and bats. Love the wolves!

    My favorite place to explore and chill-out in the summer. Beautiful meditation flower gardens, fun trout pond, and there seems to always be a cricket game to watch. The zoo is also really fun with lots of peacocks and other birds roaming around.
