If you are in Moncton you need to check this, but it is nothing special, it is a very basic attraction, they could invest more in the Zoo, which I haven't been.

We really love this zoo, they do a great job. I love it when the staff talk at the exhibits and tell you more about the animals.

Took our 18 month old to the zoo, she loved it. Trails were nice and wide for our stroller. Lots to see. She loved the slides and play area. Will definitely be back in the future.

The zoo was undergoing some construction while we were there so navigating it became a little challenging from time to time. Our daughter (3) LOVED the jungle jim. It is a very large play area for kids and offers multiple play stations within one area. The sausage at the take out restaurant wasn't anything special... Loved the River Otters.

I don't normally visit zoos when we are out and about traveling because I feel like that is something you can 'see at home', but in this case, things are very spread out in New Brunswick so I put it as a 1/2 day while we saw some other things in the area. It is a lovely zoo - very... More

Thank you Natalie for taking the time to review our zoo. I was quite surprised when I read that we didn't take credit cards because we do take all major credit cards so I checked with my admissions supervisor and i have attached her response. " Unfortunately we were experiencing technical difficulties at the time of this ladies visit. We... More

Really enjoyed the small feel of the zoo but did find nagigating it a little tricky as the map was not very accurate.

This zoo is one of the most progressive in that the majority of the... More

A great place to go on a summer's day with children. Open areas and never felt rushed. Great size so you are not exhausted before you see it all

This was a return visit, the last time we visited was probably 7-10 years ago. The facility looks better but there was a lot of construction and empty spaces. I wish if an area is empty they put a sign so you don't feel so stupid trying to see an animal in an empty cage. Also the layout is confusing,... More

Good Afternoon you are absolutely correct when you say that the zoo needs more signs and that the current configuration seems confusing but that is the price we pay in trying to undertake major improvements. we currently are designing and constructing a completely new wayfinding system that will include new directional signs,new animal info signs and a new zoo map....
