We were disappointed in our first ever trip to the Toronto Zoo on March 30th. Don’t get me wrong, we are used to walking a lot on vacation. Thursday we walked all over the Niagara Falls area, and then we walked all over downtown Toronto. Friday, we walked all through the ROM and then all over China town. However, the layout of this zoo and how far apart the animal exhibits are is nothing short of ridicules! To make it even worse there is virtually nothing to look at as you walk long distances between exhibits! The exhibits themselves are disappointing. The plaques merely identify what the animal is. Good luck if you have questions about the environment it lives in and what it eats etc. This zoo doesn’t want you to learn anything about the animals. They might as well post a plaque at every exhibit that says “critter”. Toronto is a city with 2.6 million people. Columbus, Ohio has only about 1 million people yet we have a much better zoo. I know the Toronto Zoo now has Giant Pandas. But the Columbus Zoo had Pandas back in 1992
