“Amazing Day ”
Review of The Papanack Zoo

The Papanack Zoo
Reviewed August 29, 2017 via mobile

What an amazing day we had at the Papanak Zoo in Wendover. The staff were so helpful and informative when it came to information about the zoo and all the animals. We loved the personal interaction that we were able to have with the animals. Will definitely return for another fun day.

Its a small zoo so you get to see the animals closer.

It was a different zoo experience. If you're close to the are it's worth checking out. It was also very affordable.

You can bring your own picnik inside.

I think they treat the animals well.

Three of us went in July to visit on the way back to Ottawa from Hawkesbury. The animals' living spaces are too small, the animals look neglected and some even look like they know they are emprisonned. I don't have a clue why they haven't been closed down. We all left feeling very guilty laying for giving them any money. Over a month later I still think about the animals.

Fun to have a zoo in our region. The place needs improvement. It looks old, poor and doesn't look inviting. The place needs to be refreshed. Love to see different animal not far from home. Went ounce and will not return soon. It needs more familly space, more interraction and more things to do. Adding attractions and spectacles could help the bussiness. Didn't enjoy as is was too fast of a visit and little to do. Needs more intertainment.

We just visited the Papanack zoo yesterday. While we have been in the area for 16 years it was our first and won't be our last. While the landscape needs improvement the new management are doing an excellent job at managing with their resource available. The staff are very friendly which give you an experience that is unique. It feels likes that you have a zoo in your backyard. I recommend this place without hesitation. This is a zoo made by people that love animals.
