Went for a visit with the family in 2015. I have been to a number of zoos in Canada and other places. This is one of the best kept I have seen. The animals all looked very healthy and well cared for. Enclosures are spacious and well thought out. The grounds are very well kept and the trail system gives... More

This place is an accident waiting to happen. The animals here are kept in too small of spaces which results in nervous habits and frustration. Please spend your money somewhere else and don't support zoos. I had never been here before and assumed that with all of the land that is in the area that the animals would have had... More

Whilst everything looks great and dandy with nicely laid out sidewalks and ponds, this zoo is a very sad place to take your kids to walk around. These animals do not belong here and a lion locked up in a cage for its life or the panther running around an environment not much larger than a Tim Hortons is simply... More

Our family (2 adults and 3 kids - 12, 9 and 6) had a great few hours at the zoo. We liked this one because the animals are close together and we walked through the whole zoo within a few hours. The animals all looked happy and well-taken care of. We chose not to eat at the zoo because the... More

First of all I am ashamed to say I have never been to this zoo before now although I have been to Moncton many times. The zoo is immaculate with wooded trails to break the sun's heat and plenty of garbage containers which people are respectful enough to use! We arrived in the afternoon so many of the animals were...

Went there 2-3 times this summer and was amazed each time with the different animals they had, especially the lions and tigers. The tiger exhibit is really something - there is only a window between the visitors and these majestic beasts!

We were about halfway through the zoo when we were caught in a thunderstorm - we didn't get to see everything, but I'm glad we were able to see the tiger exhibit, which is fantastic.

We visited at the end of the winter season, before the primates were returned to their summer enclosures. It was heartbreaking to see them in little rooms that looked like cheap bathrooms, bored out of their skulls. The lions, tigers, and other animals are in larger, more appropriate surroundings, but the miserable primate cells reminded me that these animals just... More
