“Was CLOSED!”

Polar Bear Habitat & Heritage Village
Reviewed July 26, 2012

We were on holidays in the Timmins area and decided to go to Cochrane and see the Polar bears. When we got there, the whole place was shut down. There were signs on the way to visit, also there was a very small closed sign on door.After reading some of the comments about prices, maybe that was a good thing it was not open. This was over a year ago and we have heard they are open again.

Ganuk has got to be one of the most active polar bears. He eats cavorts and plays through the glass enclosure. Slightly expensive but since we got to spend over an hour with Ganuk, well worth the money

the cost of seeing the one bear for a family of more then 4 is outrageous especially if you have children that want to swim in the pool next to the one bear. Our grandchildren, there are 9 and 3 adults is over the 300 $ mark and that is just way out of the question for a few hours. Swimming use to be included and there was a great muesum to go through. It was a day adventure.

The Cochrane Polar Bear Habitat has welcomed a new resident Polar Bear, Ganuk. He will have a couple of weeks to get used to his new home and then around July 1, the park will open to the public. Welcome Ganuk. We look forward to seeing you and getting to know you!

OK, I didn't go in May 2012, I just thought people should know the polar bears died. So there are none. Just a really remote water park now.
