The penguins were my favorite. But the hole park was awesome. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were there for 6 hours it was a very hot day. We bought in water and they have place that you can refill your own water bottles which was awesome.

We were staying in Kamloops for a couple of nights and wanted to fill our day with something to do. It was recommended by the hotel we're staying at that it's a fun place to visit. I'm not sure what I exactly expected - maybe as the name suggests - wildlife in nature maybe? But it is just a zoo.... More

We were told of this place at the tourist information office when we stopped for a map of Kamloops. It was really worth going too. These are animals that are native to the province which is very interesting in itself. They are rescued animals that are given a safe place to live. They have a wonderful water park and playground...

The residents of this park have been rescued and some can not be rehab' to the wild and stay. Staff and volunteers are helpful and knowledgeable. Try to go to one of the scheduled animal encounter events. The background and biology of each animal is interesting. Kamloops is hot in the summer(+30 mid day). Sunscreen, hats, water...you know the drill.....

My family loves the Kamloops Wildlife park. It's educational as well as fun. Lots to see and do. They have a cool playground area and were just finishing the spray park when we were there.

We enjoyed seeing the animals and the spray park was fun on a hot day. The walk to the falls was worth the short hike.

Our kids loved it, to see animals in large habitats and to know that they were all injured and would not service back In the wild because of a hurt wing or no antlers made this attraction even more special, it could use a little TLC but we had a great time spend about 3 hrs looking and riding the...

The park is a great place for any age...but go early. Animals tend to be up and about early in the day and snooze in the later morning and afternoon, There is a train run by volunteers and is only $1 for the ride around the park. There is a hike towards the end of the park, but we didn't... More

We greatly enjoyed this facility. It allows space for the animals as well as exhibiting good design for public viewing. Watching the ghost bear frolic in the water and climb trees was one of the highlights of our whole two week trip. Thank you and keep up the good work!
