We came here with my wife and family and had a great time. Loved how the place is laid out. The goats in the petting zoo were the highlight.

A friend and I visited this park this week. What a great place. All of the staff were knowledgeable, the animals appeared content and the hourly education programs were accessible and interesting for all age levels. We easily spent four hours enjoying the property.

We got to see a moose, bears, elk, eagles, owls, bison, a cougar, and others. There was more to see than we expected. We ended up getting souvenirs for family in the gift shop because they were much cheaper here than the shops in sun peaks. The trainer who fed the moose and elk was very knowledgable and personable.

Would of been way more enjoyable if we hadn't visited on such a hot day however we got to see many of the animals, (the ones that were not hiding in the shade, lucky buggers) when they were eating. A cougar was eating a frozen rabbit! We have a lot of these animals around us but never have to opportunity... More

Stopped in here on our way to salmon arm. The kids (aged 9 and 12) enjoyed the animals they saw. Some were hiding, it was hot out already and we arrived just before 9:30 am, so I understand them not wanting to be out. The staff that was working outside (in the heat) were very friendly and helpful. The staff... More

This was a lot bigger than expected - I was amazed at how many different animals were there! Definitely a highlight was the bear feeding time, and the train for the kids - and a great playground if the kids get bored of animals! The badger was a highlight for us. If I was a local I would get a... More

A good morning out with my daughter to check out this Wildlife park I hadn't seen since I was a kid myself. Positives- lots of typical interior BC and mountain wildlife to be seen, fun activitie for kids and a good train ride. Short walk to Dipper Falls is also enjoyable. Improvable- the wildlife interpretation is very hodge-podge. Signs are... More

An amazing park with a variety of wildlife! Deer, eagles, bear, camels, badger, wolves, goats, pigs, peacocks, owls, moose, elk, monkey, raccoons, swans, ducks.... on and on! Animals are well-cared for and the park is clean. There is a petting zoo and a kids play area with sand, Tonka trucks, slides, tunnels, large climbing structure and 'lookout' perch. There is...

Awesome opportunity to see wildlife in person, safely. You can see how well taken care of the animals are, a lot (maybe all?) are rescue animals brought back to health from what I understand. The kids love what they usually can only see on TV or in books, petting area and playground too to keep them entertained. Of course there's... More
