These guys have made changes over the years. I've visited this zoo three times in the 16 years I've been coming to the eastern townships. This year was the second time with my children. I was so surprised! The staff is excellent and they almost all speak English. They are happy to try their English on you if you Like... More

We had a great time visiting the zoo! It was sooo hot while we were there, we only stayed about 4 hrs/ day. The place was packed, because unbeknownst to us, we picked one of the busiest times to visit. There were 12,000 visitors one day. We loved all the play areas and all the seating. The bubble pit was... More

It's a Zoo with numerous species though, a hint, if you want to see most animals awaken, either go real early in the morning or as late as the zoo permits you to go. 'Cause during the day...a lot of animals are just simply asleep. But it's fun, some very good animations, was fun learning and seeing the giraffes up... More

You need at least 2 twos to do and see everything at that zoo. Just the zoo itself takes a day to visit. Plus there is free rides for the kids (2 or 3 you need to pay for), plus there is the Amazoo, which is a waterpark, included in the price of your entry to the zoo. You could... More

This wasn't our first time visiting the zoo, but it has been about 5 years since our last visit. For the most part, the animals haven't changed. They are still so much fun to see. The Amazoo was packed! Yes it was a nice hot day, but the waiting times were ridiculous! I refused to wait in the hot pavement... More

I hadn't been to a zoo since I was a child so I don't have much to compare it with but this zoo is well laid out and very creatively designed with the different themes based on each continent. Some of the enclosures were small but all in all the animals seemed well taken care of and content. Our 3... More

As Zoo's go this is a pretty good one, there is a big range of animals, lions, tigers, elephants. They rent strollers and wagons to tow your gear and your kids as you should be prepared to walk. The water park at the Zoo is a lot of fun, they have a multiple pool options, two wave pools, kids zone,... More

Second time being here with kids. Lots to see. Bring lots of snacks and drinks, the prices are quite high. The amusement park area has rides for different ages. Cash on hand is needed for train ride, camels, ponies, games and 2 of the rides.

We went to Zoo de Granby with our two kids (3 and 1 years old) on a very hot day. We were able to observe many species of animals. We brought our lunch to eat on a picnic table. We did a mini-train tour (extra charge). I was very glad to see a halte-Bébé where I could give my little... More

Our second visit in two years, and brought along the BFF of our daughter, who hadn't seen a zoo before. Was a great day. Get there early. Our last trip we arrived an hour before opening, and found a great spot to set up, however a late exit from our hotel had us arriving just before opening. It was packed... More
