they are over priced and rather boring. They need to invest in some more hands on things as well as perhaps reducing their rates. While my oldest really enjoyed it my younger 2 boys found it less entertaining.

This is such a special place to go and I always buy annual passes because I usually go multiple times a year and the money goes to such a wonderful organization. Walking around the park or up to the waterfall is a great way to connect with nature and get to see animals in ways that you normally wouldn't get... More

We've been going with our family for years to the Wildlife Park. There is something to see and do the whole year! Some of our highlights have been Easter for the big Easter egg hunt, summer for the water park, Halloween for the spooky surprises and of course winter for wildlights! The lights are amazing especially when you ride the... More

We take the grandkids every year - the park is walkable, though we do like the train tour - and the variety of wildlife is remarkable. They do wonders healing wounded wildlife and returning them to the wild. Those that cannot be returned are well cared for, and become teaching animals, to increase public awareness. Home to the world's only... More

I have a membership in the Kamloops Wildlife Park because of the incredible work they do both to educate people about the animals, and the recovery work for the animals.

When I think of a wildlife park I gt concerned with the treatment of the animals, I found the park well maintained and the animals well cared for. The park is easy to get around and they have a good and diverse selection of species. If near kamloops take your family, you will not be disappointed.

The park itself is in a neat location and there is a lot of potential but overall it was similar to visiting a zoo in China. Small heavily caged enclosures with little "natural" habitat. With a name that includes "park" we expected much more open space, especially since it focused on local animals. There is one major new enclosure being... More

The animals are beautiful and the badger is full of personality. Lots of little gifts and interactive activities. Holidays are celebrated nicely with lights and characters. The one downfall is the cafe. DO NOT GO HERE FOR FOOD OR IF YOU ARE HUNGRY. Would recommend the cafe have a service, food and price lift. Long waits, expensive, horrible quality food.... More
