Animals and fun for everyone. We have a great train ride through the park, some new animals this year and just a wonderful place to take your family, both young and old.

Before I begin, I must say that because I'm from Toronto, I have been spoiled by larger zoo's with bigger budgets so I am trying to stay as neutral as possible. The zoo was smaller than I expected it to be and although it was a bit pricey in my opinion to get in (admission) I do understand that feeding... More

My first visit and I enjoyed it. The property is large, but well laid out and easy to walk. It was an extremely hot (40 degrees C) day and quiet, but I was surprised at the number of birds and animals we were able to see. (The park did a good job watering in all locations providing relief.). There is... More

It's a great place for kids to see some wild animals and there were quite a few there. The feeding of the grizzly bears was very interesting. The keeper placed fruit in different places and even stuck apples on tree branches. When the bears were released again they started hunting for their treats. I came primarily to take some photos....

Its worthwhile going here just to see the white bear. When we were there it had just been placed in its enclosure so it was climbing and testing out the trees. It was amazing to watch and we were very lucky.

This wildlife park introduces children to many native species of BC that they may never see in the wild. However the park is large and can become a lot for little ones to walk through, I recommend bringing a wagon, or grabbing one of the complimentary ones, pack a snack because the cafe is a bit overpriced like most theme...

We were very dissapointed. The place looks abit deserted, only few animals, It seems the main focus of the place is the store and resteraunt.... More

Worse than a zoo. Really? Are any of the animals going to be rehabilitated back into the wild? For a rescue group, you expect some of the animals to be returned to the wild....not neutered or spayed and kept.

I visited this park with my family to see the new attraction, Clover, the Kemode white bear and was not disappointed. This young bear was very active and inquisitive of his new surroundings and offered loads of photo opportunities. There are also many other wild animals here, who are kept safe as they are injured or otherwise unable to return... More
