I've been going to the Forestry Farm since I was a kid, took my kids as they were growing up and will continue to go without kids! Great place to see North American wildlife.

It's no Calgary Zoo, but there is a nice variety of animals, and it's a beautiful place to walk, especially in winter when there is no one there. There is no admission even, but it's recommended you make a donation.

Tried to come a few times but the rain had other plans. Finally caught a break in the weather and was able to enjoy the zoo! Was a really enjoyable day, lots of walking and lots to see, some areas were "puddled" and you had to walk through it. The food was expensive but good. The butterfly garden was really... More

My daughter and I usually visit the forestry farm at least once a year and always enjoy ourselves. It's definitely no Calgary Zoo, but it's a nice small little zoo so it doesn't eat up an entire day, and we really like they trolley ride to see the bigger animals. I always pack a lunch and we picnic in the... More

I've been to several weddings at the hall there and love just walking around the park with all the flowers and trees. It's also a great place for a family picnic or reunion as there are barbecues and tables and a Fishing Pond! And then there is the zoo. Kids love it and they have special events for junior zookeepers.... More

Very well maintained place! Great for everyone as they have stuff to do with family like train ride around the zoo where kids don't have to walk a lot. Great place for fishing too. All animals in good health and cleanliness given extreme importance there. will visit soon!!!

This is a really nice zoo for all ages but it is so much more. I have been walking there almost every day this summer, all for the cost of a $12. entrance pass. This does not include the zoo part which is also reasonable. It lets you walk among acres of many kinds of nice trees, flowers and a... More

It's no major city zoo, you can walk through it pretty quickly. What's nice about it is that there is no mass crowds of people gawking at the animals so you can really take your time if you find deer interesting.

Great selection of animals, I like how you can rent plots for birthday parties. Bathrooms can be a bit of a struggle to find if you don't know where you're going but overall a great time
