“Memories”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Brought back wonderful memories when my Dad brought us here as kids. It is also free. It gave my hubby and I much needed time together while dealing with a family member in hospital.

“It's free!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

I love seeing the faces of family while we strole and watch the animals. It has no cost to get in, but donations help keep it running. There is even a water park for the summer. This is a big hit!

“A park with a zoo - no entry fee!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

This is a great place to take small children. It is a park-like setting, and you can see most of the animals. There is a splash pad, wide paved trails, and picnic benches, and, it is free!

“Great Family destination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

We went with our 4 year old daughter and had a great time! I wish I had known that the restrooms by the fountain were closed but everything else was great.

“Riverview Park and Zoo Peterborough”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

This park is a lovely park to visit and take your children , or grandchildren ... they had a wonderful time and enjoyed the splash pad immensely and enjoyed the animals the park and all the fun things to do there ... and the huge slide tunnel into the woods ... they took lots of pictures with their i-pods and ended with the train ride which was a hoot for them ....they were only 8 & 9yrs old ...and to top it all off they had a big ice cream cone from the snack bar . Our donation of your choice was all it took to go and join in the fun times here ....thank you Peterborough we had a really good day !!!!! Lyn ....
