Well kept areas, up close on most animals, easy to get around, this is definitely worth a stop, especially if you are going to Magnetic Hill anyway...

Our two daughters love going to the zoo. This is a great zoo. It's the best I have visited in Atlantic Canada. There is a variety of wildlife to see, including lions, tigers, and bears. The feeding times are a must see as the zookeepers give you some insight into the specific species and individual animals at the zoo.

I visited last summer, it was fun and calm, the monkey's were really funny and my favorite part was the ostrich. It can be quite a long walk for kids during the summer, so make sure to keep a water bottle around since its usually really hot in Moncton during summer. Overall a nice fun experience!

This is a small zoo if you compare it to Toronto but it is well setup and the animals look happy. The cats were in a bit of a fuss but the zoo is extending their enclosure so they had a smaller space to roam in. Got to see the lions interact which was nice!! They were very playful! I... More

We went on a bit of a rainy day so it wasn't too crowded which was great. Saw most of the animals very well, some were feeding. The black bears were most entertaining.

We visited the zoo on the day we left Moncton. We had an hour or so before we had to leave so we thought we would take our young daughter to see the animals at the zoo. It was raining so a lot of the animals were seeking shelter. It was nice that they had a building where you could... More

This Zoo was actually bigger than I expected it to be. We went on a July Sunday afternoon, and there seemed to be only a handful of people there. Don't go in the afternoon though, all of the animals were sleeping! There was an AMAZING playground, the best I've ever seen I bet! We will go again later just for... More

The layout of this zoo is great. Great playground too! Location is good to make a full day between it and Magic Mountain.

We've been to the zoo many times, and our last experience was lacking. A large part of the zoo was blocked off to build a new exhibit, so we had to backtrack around the construction. We were a family of four, all over 12, so we had to pay adult prices for everyone- $60.00. Some of our favorite exhibits, the... More
