  • I have met the new owners & their vision is something I can stand behind. They actually care about the animals & are looking to improve their quality of life. Their animals eat better than most humans!
  • I feel bad for the animals. I don't know anything about proper caging. But they just look so unhappy. I can't bring myself to go again.
  • We spent all afternoon at the zoo, and my grandchildren who are 12 and 9 years old and I completely enjoyed every minute! There is such a terrific number of animals to watch...tigers, lions, bears, timber wolves, coyotes, foxes, camels, and the list goes on! We could share in the experience of learning what the animals eat as well as ask questions which were answered with sincerity and knowledge only those who care for the animals would know . I would definitely recommend families of all ages should experience this fabulous zoo.
  • New owners suck. Animal prisons are boring. Go away with the Bowmanville Zoo. Get a life.
  • I enjoyed my first visit at this zoo in 2015. We attended to the meals of many animals and we learned a lot about them. I regret that the zoo 's reputation is tarnished by a human error that was made. Personally I will not let this unfortunate event change my opinion of the zoo and I will return for sure. UPDATE: I went back this year (2016) and it's not the same zoo. The lions are now in a very small enclosure, some animals didn't have fresh water and rotten food was left in the enclosures. The sheep enclosure was broken and one sheep was out of it in the public section. We told the staff and they didn't seem to care. They just told us that they keep repairing it and the sheep are always able to break it again. Also the baby cougar was used to be pet by the public and was wearing a cat collar...I spent the hour it took to go back home in choc, thinking of how the animals looked sad. I will never go back again.
