We love the zoo. They are working hard every year to improve habitats. Only complaint is the lunch hut. Some healthier fare would be nice. Even just a selection of cold sandwiches, for those who don't want deep fried everything.

We arrived around 9 AM, paid our entry fee, and followed the instructions. It was nice being early as it enabled me to try out the hill several times. You think and feel that you are driving down hill, but once the car is stopped and placed in neutral, you begin moving backward "up" the hill.

Had a great time, animals were out and about, got to pet the horses and goats, they added new sections and animals so I was satisfied with my visit.

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
