The zoo is a favorite place to visit for the children, families and singles as well as visitors to our area. The location is ideal for the family who wish to take a day trip, with Magic Mountain Water Park adjacent to the zoo. There is a gift shop located at the exit of the zoo with a variety of... More

After a very harsh winter, we went to the Moncton zoo on opening weekend. Although there was lots of work remaining to be done on the grounds as a result of a very severe winter, the grounds were clean and the pathways were clear of debris. This is an ideal family destination for a day outing as this is a... More

I have been here quite a few times. It seems like they are putting some money into the park. The playground was really nice the kids had a blast. We went of season and enjoyed it much more. The park wasn't busy and the value was better. Some things were still closed but I feel we got what we needed.... More

We visited recently and my daughter loved it. It wasn't too big so her legs didn't get tired. The otters really held her attention. They were so active and their enclosure was setup to really be able to see them well. The park was amazing. We had a hard time getting her to leave it. If we were local we... More

The animals here seem content and healthy. There is a large variety of animals to see. The zoo itself isn't the best attraction in the area. It isn't either the best zoo in Canada, but it is good.

Magnetic Hill Zoo is a great place to go as it isn't huge nor is it small. It is a perfect size for anyone and it has a lot of great animals. I prefer to go near later in the day when the animals are getting fed. That is always fun to watch.

It was an ok zoo, I have been touch better. A lot of the exhibits were closed so we couldn't see half the animals. I would maybe go in the summer but ask if all the exhibits are open first. The playground is probably the best part.

Soo many wonderful creatures to admire..my kids loved it there when they were younger, but as an older adult we still go once a year at least to enjoy! Right next door is another great family time adventure Magic Mountain! :) I can't... More

The animals have great places, they are not cramed into small cages. The Lion place is really big, and you walk over them in a clossed bridge. Overall a big garden with lots of space for the animals.
