It never gets boring spending time at the Peterborough Zoo. The kids love seeing the animals, riding on the train, playing in the park and if weather permits cooling off in the water park.

This little zoo is free and so much fun. Children of all ages will love the play ground and the new splash pad.

Animals are well cared for, and there are lots of picnic spots both by the zoo animals and along the river. It's one of Peterborough's treasures.

LIked: Size, variety, location, price
Dislike: because it's free it doesn't have some of the amenities that other zoos do.

First of all its FREE.
Monkeys,Otters, Camels and much more.
Amazing water park for kids, play area (jungle gym)............huge slide, in which kids have to walk up very long stairs (which tires them out).
A train which costs a $1 to ride.........I can't say enough.....this zoo is fantastic.

Splash pad for hot summer days.

Everything is free except for the train ride across the river.
