  • This has got to be one of the most disappointing days out in Canada. Such a poor layout of the zoo, no logical way to walk around and you find yourself backtracking over the same area over and over.....  more

  • The zoo is a beautiful place to walk around and enjoy both the animals and the natural scenery. There are so many exhibits and animals that it is hard to cover everything in one day. We purchased a membership and love it! My son loves seeing the animals and walking around. We usually bring our own food but there are a variety of food options, but not all are open throughout the year. We find the best time to go is first thing in the morning before the crowds.
  • Nice zoo! Good size--can spend a half day or full day depending on how much time you want to spend at the exhibits. Everything seemed clean and well maintained and most of the animals had lots of room to roam around in their enclosures. Some kid specific sections which were nicely done. Tram ride was extra--someone interesting but not sure it was worth the extra money. Good visit.
  • Huge I mean huge zoo. Plan a day trip. Large variety of animals and species. They are famous for being the only zoo in the world that have white African lions in captivity . They are stunning. The zoo is well kept the animals have large spaces to roam. It’s a very family oriented Zoo they have all kind of activities going on (check their website) and they have a large parking and dedicated bus stops every 30 min to bring you to the nearest subway station def worth visiting There will be a lot of walking So It’s Very important that you wear comfortable cloths and shoes and you bring snacks and water..
  • The Toronto Zoo is amazing. You can tell that their first priority is the animals, and it's shown through their care and attention to detail. I went while the was an outbreak of avian flu so most birds were in areas inaccessible to the public for the birds' safety, but with how big the zoo is there was no shortage of animals to see. I'm happy to spend the reasonable cost of admission to help in the conservation efforts. I highly recommend that everyone visits at least once!
  • The Toronto Zoo is a awesome family experience. This was our first time at the Toronto Zoo and we loved it. Besides the great exhibition... seeing my son so happy and enjoying, it makes it just wonderful and priceless. Everything is great and we'll maintained. We learned a lot as well. Lots of walking so come prepared with a good stroller if needed, comfy shoes and lots of liquids/refreshments. They do have lots of vending points with great options. Unfortunately I didn't catch her name, but I went for an adult refreshment, and the lady assisting there was super polite, friendly and helpful.... besides funny, she made an awesome joke of my beer selection. Kudos to her and for having so wonderful staff. Fully recommended and is a must family experience πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ˜ŽπŸ€ŸπŸ»πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦πŸ
