The Zoo is often called the Forestry Farm so sometimes confuses people. We'd often take our children through in the summer, parking is free but there is an admission charge. It's great to walk around and explore and there's lots of animals to see. But we recently took some out of town guests to the Forestry Farm in the winter... More

This zoo seemed primarily focused at putting the spotlight on Canadian animals. And they did very well at this. I have been to some zoo's recently that were a lot bigger, with more exotic animals that were not kept up near as well as Saskatoon's zoo. The enclosure's were big generally, making it fairly easy to get a good look... More

Loved our pleasant drive through the lighted displays some Christmas related, and so much more! Take your time to enjoy a whole lot of effort to make a very special evening that most definitely puts you in the festive mood! A must do!

Not a "world class" zoo by any means, small city, small zoo. But.... this is a fantastic family park and zoo. Plan for a picnic in the summer, or just a stroll through the zoo in the winter (its free in winter months). The animals are typically more active (those that are non-migratory) and it is a beautiful setting. You... More

My children and I have been there twice! And we live 2.5 hours away. I would have been there sooner but I really didn't know it was that great. Summer time is a great time to see the animals, which there is a surprising amount of. But winter time oh my what a sight, the lights for Christmas are magical.... More

This is a great little zoo for young children. There are a few carnivores, although it has taken a bit of a hit since the lions moved on. The new nocturnal area is fun for the kids and the bats never disappoint. The train ride is fun and informative, and a great way to get around the large outlying areas... More

We love to take our small grandkids 4 under 4. It is a wonderful couple of hours of entertainment and they each have their favourite area. One loves the horses, one the red Panda (who knew?) and especially being able to feed the animals. Such fun for all of us.

Its been a while since I been there, but one of my favorite places to go. I love the animals and nice place for children to blow off steam. Great memories and hoping to make more. Plus it is adjacent to a park and fishing pond...many happy memories
