We picked a cooler, cloudy day to visit the park as at this time of year our weather can get extremely hot. I guess the animals liked the cooler weather as wel because most of them were out of the pens & wandering around. Including the twin grizzlies! The raptor show was fantastic and very well presented.

We nearly didn't make the trio based on some of the reviews, but we were so glad we did! We are mom & 3 kids (ages 5, 8 & 10). We arrived at 1030 in the heat & managed to cover the left side of the wildlife park (not a zoo people!) before going to the Birds of Prey show... More

Took our two granddaughters, ages 5 & 6 and had a very enjoyable day. Glad to know that most animals are rescue cases and all looked very healthy and content. Seeing a Grizzly dig a den was fascinating and showed their power. The raptor demo was very good. It is good to have a place like this that focuses on... More

If we haven't been to the Vancouver zoo, I would give a higher rating. Aside from the bears, there are not many animals in there. The admission fees are a bit expensive. It only take 2 hours for us to finish touring the whole facility.The animals in there are pretty skinny and it's depressing to see that.

This was a side stop recommended by the staff at Mt. Robson Info Centre and we loved it! The bears were amazing to see so close up and the kids loved the train ride that took you all around the park!

This was an interesting and fun tour. Got to see a lot if different animals. One thing I would totally recommend is to go early in the day, as in the afternoon It can get way too hot to stand around out there.

Great time getting up close with black bears and grizzlies. Well worth it. Park attendants were very helpful.

Very nice to see that all the animals here are rescue animals, still a bit upsetting to see them behind bars though.

The animals were all rescue, either born in captivity, handicapped or orphaned, all not able to make it in the wild. The park is not entirely huge, but to see all of it allow 1.5-2 hours. The animals are all caged. The most of the park is wheelchair-accessible. There is a small waterfall that is about 5 minutes away, which... More

We really enjoyed our family trip to the wildlife park. The bird show at 11.00 am was great, it was really interesting to see the owls and eagles flying up close. In particular the kids loved the Golden Eagle and the fact that although she had been injured, prior to come to the park, she still took part in the... More
