I used to take my school classes to tour the Wildlife Park while I was still teaching. There was a separate little building where we gathered, alone without distractions, for an excellent lesson by an experienced Park Naturalist. The petting zoo was still allowed to exist. I think it is expensive now, But for families who do want to see... More

There are a good variety of activities offered here, and the family can spend a relaxing day easily exploring the park and seeing real wildlife in good sized enclosures. My children are grown, but I still occasionaly visit the Wildlife Park . They try hard and it shows.

This is the worst wildlife park I have ever been to. Lots of the animals look sick. I'm an advid hunter and videographer and these poor animals are nothing like what they should be. I have lots of them on video to compare.......I don't know what they are doing wrong but it's something.

This is a large park, very well set up with lots to see. Excellent setting. The train is a hit with the kids. We have taken visiting family and friends here many times. Everyone is always impressed.

Had a good time viewing the animals for a few hours and riding the train. The park is a little small, but the employees seem passionate about their park. The feeding talks were fun to listen in on.

My kids love the Park, we're there probably once a month. Boo at the Zoo and Wildlights are great! Staff is super friendly and informative. The moose are really cool!

I love the Kamloops Wildlife Park, it is very well kept and a wonderful experience to go and see all the animals, am looking forward to seeing the spirit bear at his new home there.

Beautiful park set out for easy walking to view many animals. The feeding talks with the zookeepers are not to be missed. Leave yourself a whole day to explore this Park, so much to see and do.

We took the kids there when they were in the early teens, we liked it as the animals seemed well cared for and the enclosures were well kept, I do not believe in animals in captivity but if they are injured and taken in this is the place.

I have been there with a group of school kids. The animals are great. The enclosures are animal friendly. The school program is informative and the kids love the train. Owls up close as well as many other kinds of animals. I have heard the christmas light display is fantastic.
