I have been taking my kids here for years. When they were younger we always had a pass however now they are older and we don't go as often but still always worth a visit no matter how old you are. Perfect stop for travelers to stretch and grab a bite too eat.

Run mainly by volunteers all the animals were rescued but couldn't be returned to the wild for a variety of reasons. Relatively small so feels like you are close to the animals. The only downside was watching two volunteers hit a hornets nest with a broom while other patrons wandered passed!

This is amazing centre, that rescues and tries to rehabilitate the animals. We got there just after 10am, and left at 2! There is a bird demonstration, the best the grizzly feeding which I think is noon- which is a must!

Went with a couple of families and was greatly amazed at the facility, knowledgeable staff, and amount of rescued animals. Well, well worth the stop as we thoroughly enjoyed it.

I like the idea of this: a park featuring BC wildlife. When I visited, it was undergoing renovations, and several of the animals were not in evidence. The enclosures are quite large and the animals seemed to be in good condition with no signs of stress. They have a Kermode bear (a white form of the black bear) which may... More

IT WAS SMALL! IT WAS BC WILDLIFE! it was the raccoons that... More

Wasn't expecting to spend much time here one morning during an overnight stay on the way to Jasper. So we went in and came out 2 hours later😊. They have a bunch of bears- grizzlies, black bears and a white black bear (kermode bear). Saw a Bactrian camel for the first time. There was a peacock just sitting there. The... More

My 2 yrs old is fond of bears and we had the option of taking our luck and see a bear in the wild during our Canadian Rockies road trip or visit a zoo. Glad we visited the zoo in kamloops and got the chance to see the bears up close. They also had a petting area and our daughter... More

This was a lovely wildlife park to visit. The animals were all well kept and it was great to hear from the keepers how they continue to stimulate the animals by hiding their food etc, we enjoyed watching the Bears being fed and learning more about them. We ate in the cafe too which I thought was really well priced!... More
