“Run Down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

This zoo has been a joke for years, I'm ashamed to say. Very small in comparison to others you may have been to. The Calgary Zoo is the zoo you want to go to if you are looking for a zoo in Alberta. This one pales in comparison.

“Family venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

Young kids will enjoy, quite big, not very expensive. Well organized.
Some food stands were overpriced.

“An old ZOO”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

The Zoo is outdated, seems like it needs more funds to get the right "lift". The large land there is not used efficietntly, should build new buildings for the sea life and a new area for the birds should be considered. Shame on the bird section, such a small cages.... comparing to the Calgary Zoo, this one is a "poor relative"

“going downhill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

The Edmonton ZOO has been going steadily downhill in the last decade or so. The animal runs inadequate and the animals appear listless and unstimulated
