I love going here every summer! They only keep animals that cannot be released back into the wild. The enclosures are huge, so sometimes its hard to see the animals. Many animals are happier when they have a place to hide. The walking trails are beautiful. It's a great place for families.

It's a very beautiful place, great the the larger animals have such a good enclosure to move around, just like what it is in the wild! Great that they also rehabilitate animals there and care for them! Beautiful walk, although if it's after raining it gets quite slippery so be aware on the walkway. Animals aren't always visible but that's... More

Beautiful place to visit for a few hours to get a first hand look at some of NL's animals in their natural habitats. Take a leisurely stroll or a brisk walk around the board walk / gravel trail while stopping to have a look and read about our beautiful animals !!

I live only kms from this beautiful Park. I've been visiting there for the better part of my 40 years. We typically visit once weekly during the season. My kids know the trail and enclosures by heart. They love it! Visitors have to understand that the park is for rehabilitation and protection of injured animals so the occupancy of enclosures...

It was interesting to see fiddleheads and pitcher plant. You can start at anytime and go quickly or make it a relaxing stroll and watch the otter working... More

We debated coming off the highway for this as it didn't have a huge web presence or reviews. So glad we did! It was excellent! So much care and thought has gone into the exhibits. Instead of going to a Zoo, this is a series of 16 enclosures featuring animals being rehabilitated. Good signage and info for each animal and... More

This is an amazing walk into a stunningly beautiful and quiet forest. Along the way the chance to see animals in the wild adds to the fun. The staff are wonderfully informative.
