great park!

Kids absolutely loved the animals but the kid playground is what topped it off it was so huge like 12 slides I think I counted. Staff was great and very very clean.

The size of the zoo makes it a perfect trip for young children. Very clean and well organized. Two different petting/feeding areas. Use your CAA card for a discount.

This zoo is just OK. I can not put my finger on it, but this place depresses me a little. Maybe the street signs make me sad for the animals as it is a reminder that they are captive in an urban setting

It's a very well-run zoo, CAZA-certified, with big enclosures and both native and exotic animals. Small enough to tour in a couple of hours, but world-class. Brought our 10-year-old naturalist, and would do so again. Good value as well.

Still has the same fascination as many years ago. It has a lot of things to do now, a zoo, water slide but you can just visit the hill if you want.

the animals were all nice and lazy but what did I expect it was a hot sunny Thursday. they were cool and it was educational. there are plenty of exhibits to see with nice healthy animals. I recommend this if you are headed through moncton.and it is the largest of the zoos in Atlantic canada.

We visited this on July 10, 2015 and will definitely visit every time I visit Moncton with my daughter. It's beautiful! I was kind of disappointed that there weren't giraffe's, elephants, hippos, etc but it's a huge zoo and definitely worth the money spent!

Best zoo in the province and probably the maritimes. Beautiful park with lots to see, all animals are easy to spot and see, they have shows that go on through the day so be sure to check out the times. We bring our kids to the zoo every year our boys are under the age of 10 and still love... More

Not too bad all though it seemed like the reptile exhibit could use some real exotic plants to make them feel more like their own environment.
