The new owners of the zoo have certainly cleaned the place up! It still needs a few updates, but the people there are knowledgeable and friendly. It is a bit over priced for such a small place especially the $8 for toddlers. As seniors we paid $12 each and even that was a bit much for what we saw. But... More

We had a great group outing at the Papanack Zoo. (Booking the event was very easy and they were very quick to respond to my email). The staff were very accommodating and friendly. They took the time to explain everything to the children and adults in the group. All of the children really loved seeing all of the baby animals.... More

Our group of 8 families had a wonderful time visiting the Zoo. The zoo staff is very welcoming and the zoo has a relaxed atmosphere with lots of up close and hands on activities for the kids. Our kids aged 8 & 10 and said it was one of their happiest days. The kids loved meeting the baby animals and... More

I haven't been there recently but I liked it the last time. I've been reading some bad press about this "road side zoo" so I'd think twice about going there again. It costed enough to get in I remember. I was told it was orignally a breeding zoo so the animals are in a more relaxed natural setting than some... More

For 2 adults and a 4 year old, it cost us $45 to go see the zoo. They only take cash too, so we were sent to the conveniently located ATM outside the main office doors. What type of business operates as a cash only operation any more? I wonder how much of that actually gets reported to Revenue Canada?... More

We visited with our 18 month old son and loved that we could let him run around and explore without having to stay on top of him. The open fields with animal enclosures all around were wonderful. Although small... if you take your time and really enjoy the animals, watch the feeding and have some fun you can easily spend... More
