“I love giraffes!”

“I love giraffes!”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

We went to the Binder Park Zoo in August while on vacation. Giraffes are my favorite animals and for a very small fee you can feed them. It's a great photo opportunity. Be prepared to walk though at one point we thought we'd never get out of the African jungle but it was definitely worth it.

“Loved the ZooBoo!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We took our grandchildren to the ZooBoo and they loved it!! What an experience, to walk through the darkened zoo with hundreds and hundreds of pumpkins, and kids in costumes.
Great experience! The zoo is also a great place in the summer, complete with summer camp for kids, great learning experience!

“Awesome Zoo”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

This is one of the best zoos in the country. By acreage it is the 7th largest zoo in the country. They have some great animals and a new bear enclosure is opening in 2014. They a train ride and a carousel. They don't "cage" their animals like other zoos and give them a lot of space. You can also feed Giraffes and Pygmy goats. They also have a swamp walk attraction, where you can walk through a large swamp. You can ride a tram to "Africa" and see giraffes, zebras, ostriches, and other native African animals. The zoo is constantly expanding and adding exhibits. This is my favorite zoo, ever.

“Hiden gem in Battle Creek”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

My whole family was surprised by the size of the zoo. Definitely worth the trip and it is probably the best family place in BC. Feeding giraffes was very fun, although the feed was costly

“You wont be disappointed!”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a nice zoo! Offers alot of animals to see and pet. Nice, well-kept grounds! Very informative. The only thing I may say, is if you do not want to do alot of walking, in Wild Africa, after you feed the giraffe, turn back around instead of going ahead. Usually not much to see as far as the animals. They are at a far, or not at all. Little ones may get bored. Definitely, could take all day if you read the signs at all the exhibits and go inside the different attractions.
