Very nice zoo

A well managed well kept zoo. Animals seem to have lots of room and seem quite content. Can interact with some of the animals and they offer various educational sessions.

We had a great night! We arrived just early enough to see the animals and when it got dark enjoyed the beautiful Christmas Lights. It was a fun evening for the entire family.

We love taking our daughter here in the summer. We were going so often, we purchased a season pass (great deal if you go more than 3 times). It's great to get outside and see all the animals. And the winter lights show is UNREAL. If you've never seen the Christmas lights, you're missing out. They really outdid themselves this... More

Every summer when we go to Moncton, I bring my grown up kids to the zoo, just like I did when they were little. The animals are well taken care of and look healthy. It's a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.

Visiting a zoo can be a sad time as you see all the animals in captivity. I know they would rather be in the wilderness but in the wild they are also subject to food shortages, drought, predation, disease, etc. We have decided to enjoy the opportunity to see these animals that we may never see in the wild. These... More

It had been years since I had gone to the Magnetic Hill Zoo and this summer we finally found the time for a visit. We visit many zoos as we travel and just hadn't taken the time to visit one right in our hometown. It was a very nice day and we immediately noticed all the changes made to the... More

I love this zoo. Now that we live in NB, we go a couple times a year. It's very clean and bright. The animals appear to have lots of space and look healthy and happy. I would recommend going on big cat day. They bring in giant inflatables that kids enjoy. My child also got a free webkin plushie on... More
