We had some unreal and very close up encounters with some beautiful animals. We didn't have time to do the nature hike but apparently it goes up to a waterfall. Next time for sure! Wish we could have seen the spirit bear, he was hiding out the day we came by. I would go again. We got a great deal... More

We arrived quite early in the day. 9.30am and the centre had only just opened so we saw the grizzy bears being fed. It was lovely to see the two siblings bounding across their enclosure and then trying to forage for food in logs. The Ravens gave away the location of where the warden had hidden the food. We also...

This is an excellent rescue center for Canadian animals. It is a great place to view the animals of Canada and learn about them. Kids will enjoy this place with trains and a spray park in summer. If you are looking for lions, tigers, giraffes etc you will not find them as this is not a zoo.

It's animals in captivity. They claim to be there to not only educate, but to rehab animals specific to BC that have been injured or brought in. This is debatable, but this is not the forum for that discussion. My rating is based on other factors. Cost...pretty expensive. Restaurant.....more of a cafeteria and hasn't changed in forever. Could really use... More

The wildlife park is a small but good clean place to visit. It has a variety of animals that are typically found in British Columbia. They help animals to reacquaint themselves back to nature, there are a few animals that aren't capable of ever going back to the wild, and they help these animals as well. The park wasn't busy...

We had a great time here. Saw lots of different animals, really enjoyed the birds. Love they try to rehabilitate animals, so they can return to they natural habitat. However provide great care if they cannot. Had 2 young children with us. They really enjoyed petting zoo and watching the wolves. Bri g some water as it's a long walk... More

We stopped in here briefly yesterday after purchasing a Groupon. With the discount we felt it was a very good value. Regular price of $16 is still reasonable though. Lots of animals to see and the spaces they provide for the animals is better than many other similar zoos I've seen.

Just loved this place, make sure you go in the morning when they are feeding. I could have watched the bears all day long! The kids really enjoyed it and also playing at the on sight playground. The animals look well cared for and the habitats are all so natural. Very impressive indeed!

Well organized , lights and Christmas are fantastic, so is the mini train. Hot chocolate was available to take the chill off. Also went in the spring when the bears were waking up. Good little restaurant in the main building as well. Ample parking
