We were here in November while visiting our grandchildren and had the place almost to ourselves. It was cold but if you were dressed warm it was fine. There are a couple buildings to go into to warm up, one that houses the elephant and one that has monkeys, kangaroos and lots of other little animals. The seals were extremely... More

I am a local REALTOR in Edmonton. We rented the Valley Zoo for a Client Appreciation Party. We had the Valley Zoo for our own private use between 6:30 pm and 9:30 pm with an "Elephant Talk" at 7:30 pm. Lucy (the elephant) made a painting while we got to find out about her. (She is almost as old as... More

My family and I spent our last full day in Alberta at the Valley Zoo in Edmonton. It's a cute little zoo! It's not huge by any means (but we are used to the massive Metro Toronto Zoo), but it was a great few hours spent in the wonderful weather. We even got to see their resident elephant go for... More

We've been here a few times over the past couple years. Understand when you come this isn't the Calgary zoo or any of the big ones south of the boarder, but it entertains the kids and Lucy the elephant can often be seen walking around with her handlers free of cages or ropes.

I took my 6 year old Grandson to the Valley Zoo in June. It is not a large Zoo but we had a good time. My Grandson loved climbing on the igloo he could see around the Zoo he said. The highlight was when some of the animals were taken for walks around the Zoo. The elephant was wonderful to... More

Really enjoyed taking my grandchildren there and show them exotic animals and let the learn how they survive and live. We were able to ride on a little train that went around most of the exhibits. All in all , a great place to take a family!

The Valley Zoo is a great way to spend a day with your children, grandchildren,friends or by yourself! Been visiting the zoo since I was a child and it's much better now then ever. Love taking my grandchild and making it a whole day adventure of it. Hopefully she enjoys as much as I do!

The zoo as a display of animals is so so. But as a family activity with many programs, interactive events and social programs - it is very good. Highly recommend their Christmas lights and Halloween event.
