There are many things to do at this Zoo. The lazy river was relaxing and we did it many times. The wave pools were very good just hold on to your bathing suit and little kids because they are strong waves. Definitely would go again.

Going to that Zoo each year, and there's always a new theme, a new attraction. Kids loved the aerial train and the wait was shorter than it looked. Do not go during the worker's vacations - too crowded. Expensive, but you could bring your own lunch.

Just returned from Granby zoo. We did not realize the waterpark's closed for the season (open one more time Labour Day weekend). There were many others disappointed visitors. The price of admission is similar to the Toronto zoo which we are a lot more familiar with. The Granby zoo is physically much smaller, with fewer variety of animals, but the animals that are here, they are all interesting, and a lot easier to spot than at other zoos (possibly because of smaller enclosures). Staff helpful and facilities very clean. Good size, nice landscaping, and reasonable amount of shade. It'd take more than a day to take in all the animal exhibits and visit both the rides park and waterpark.

Just had a day out with the family. Lots of thing to see and many fun activities. All kid will like the free rides: bumper cars, ferris wheel etc. They have very good water parks with activity for all age groups. I actually enjoyed the water park better. And its free!
I wish they had arrows/ indicators to follow for the zoo part. We missed a big part and had to go back and that was quite a walk.
I believe season pass could be a good idea and then you can go couple of times and enjoy the water parks.
There is traffic on the week end on both ways. So leave early to get a parking nearby. If you leave by 8 from Montreal, you will be Ok and then leave the zoo by 4.
Foods are expensive , so try to get as much food as possible in your bags.

We had great fun being at the zoo. Make sure you reach early to avoid traffic and get your parking space . You could also book a parking spot for a fee . Plenty of activities all around . Make sure you plan out your way and attend feeding sessions for the animals . We attended the tiger feeding session . Although it could be a challenge somewhat if you do not know French ( as all feeding time commentary happens in French) , seeing the big cats up front and roaming around was great fun . Food option were plenty as well.
