took my grandson 2 1/2 years old & he never quit giggling & running from one site to the next. The animals and birds drew that special look & gasp...he got a ride on the narrow gauge train, stood gazing at the fighter jet, and had a riot at the water park meeting new friends and getting soaked.

Nice little zoo to visit as it is free. You can't compare it to the Metro Zoo but what do you expect when it is free. It is all outdors and next to a waterway. Popular with families with young children.

zoos that do treat their animals humanely. A beautiful outing to be had here for all ages at any time of year. Gorgeous scenic pathways, the Trent Severn Waterway runs along one side, fantastic spot for a picnic and a remarkable variety of animals for what one would expect at a zoo in a smaller city.

I have visited annually for a number of years, and am saddened to see the scarcity of animals, but the abundance of high end looking brick buildings. The water area is great for young children as is the play area.

No better value for a family adventure than taking all to the zoo. A very clean environment, the animals are very well treated, with lots of space to roam. The animals look well cared for, and well fed. A really good variety of animals on display. Great for educating young children about different animals. Lots of parking available, with typical park features with lots of green space to enjoy picnics.
