Great place to visit if you are in the Lac St. Jean area. The animals are placed in large natural habitat areas and the whole set-up of the park feels more like a walk in the forrest than a zoo. Make sure that you take...More

The Nature trail park is indeed the heart and soul of the Zoo. The pedestrian section is also different from the other zoos because you don’t have any bars or mesh between you and the animals and the habitats are big and natural. Thank you...More

Thank you for visiting our Zoo and Anima Lumina at night. We have different projections sites along the walk and special effects of sound and lights. Because it was raining you might not had the chance to fully enjoy all the details.

Well balanced zoo. The trip in bus is just long enough, seeing bears and wolves quite closely. The rest of the zoo is very well organized. A must see in the region if you are with kids.
