“Great Family Outing”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Its a great place to visit, there are animals to see, a playground for children and a new water park for kids, they'll love it and it's all free. There's an area below that's by the river and it's a great picnic area, as well theres a spot for large gatherings and its protected with a roof.

“Great Family Fun for Free”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

The park and zoo has been a mainstay in Peterborough and offers picnic areas, playground with awesome equipment for young and older kids, a splash pad with change rooms, zoo animals That are healthy and well cared for plus the miniature train that everybody loves. Free concerts in the park during summer and outdoor movies for families. Definitely worth a visit and if you are a local, you will frequent the zoo on a regular basis.

“Great Zoo and Concept”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

I've been taking my kids there for twenty years. The splash pad and otter exhibit are always the most popular but the train ride and large plaground are also a big hit.

“Fabulous family outing”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Riverview Park and Zoo is a fabulous day out for the family. Not only is there the animals and walk along the river, there is a modern water park for the young and a couple of parks for the children to play. There is a picnic area and also a canteena for snacks and drinks.
