    The best zoo in the world. I have been all over and the treatment of animals is by far the best here.
  • Gabriel C.
    Awesome zoo! But avoid going there during fall/winter. As pretty much many animals are moved out of the zoo because of the temperature :)
  • Ryan D.

    This zoo is huge so it's quite hard to see everything all in one day. It took us a while to find any animals, a lot were not in their enclosure.

    Go on a Monday morning to see the pandas in peace! The polar bears have a great space as well. Beautiful zoo but not a lot of cafes or places to sit.

    Beat the lineups at the gate by pre purchasing admission & parking tickets at this site: Gives you more time to see the animals!

    Not sure if 5 min looking through the glass on cubs and 5 min looking on big panda outdoors is worth to stand in the line for an hour. TIP: try to check the line at lunch time (2pm) it can be shorter

    DON'T seat on zoomobile at all other stations (not main station) for zoo round trip ride, they make you to leave the train and stand at the end of the line at the main station!!!!! So inconvenient (((

    Big zoo, a lot of animals. Interesting stories from zoo keepers. Great splash pad. Worth to spend all day long. We've been there from 12 p.m till 8p.m (after 7pm it's clothed but you can walk around)

    Plan for almost the whole day if you've never been. In the summer try to get there before 11:30 to avoid having to park in the "other" lot. The Canada exhibit is down a very steep incline, avoid it.

    Excellent day out but I'd pack a lunch unless you want fast food. Wear comfortable shoes - the Canadian pavilion is a bit of a hike and the way back is up a very steep hill

    If you can spend one day here make sure to check the animal showtimes. Tip: Most of the showtimes are adjacent to other showtimes. If you bring the kids with you they are definately going to love it.
  • Shiraz

    Parking: Add $10 on top(Free after 4). Because the zoo is huge you need a fast walking speed to glance through all the animals taking atleast 4 hours. Slow walkers need atleast 1 full day.

    If you're bringing kids, they'll probably want to go on the new carousel just beyond the entrance. It's hard to miss. Cost: $4 each, $10 for 3 tickets. Parents can stand for free.

    Parental warning: it's not the steepness of the path leading to the Canadian Pavilion you should worry about, it's the length of the steep path. If your kids suck, you may toting them up like luggage.
