There aren’t many parks in Peterborough which offer something for everyone. Riverview Park & Zoo is an exception and is loved by locals and tourists alike. Spread over fifty-five acres, it is designed in such a way that people from all age groups can enjoy here. There are more than forty-five species in the zoo including camel, yak, emu, river otter, two-faced sloth, squirrel monkey, crocodile and meerkat. There is a splash pad along with a mini train ride and a golf course. You can take a leisurely walk in the beautifully maintained gardens or sit in the shade of trees to relax for some time.

Riverview Park And Zoo Reviews & Ratings
Amazing place, super family oriented! The train ride is so cute my little guy LOVED it. The animals actually come to the fence to see you, not just hide. There is a bunch of playgrounds, with wheel chair access (even accessible swings!). Splash pad is well kept and super fun. Even the food and gift shop are great, not over priced and well kept. Highly recommended!
Great little zoo, lots for the kids to do. Train ride is a must, splash pad and playground were big winners. Only downside was the only food vendor closes early. Advertised hot food served until 5pm, but had stopped service at 4:15pm. Worth the 2.5 hr from Kingston!
Fabulous place for kids!! A MUST! My kids still love it (age range 7-14). We make the long trip one to three times a year! It is free and younger kids can handle the amount of walking. Toronto Zoo is too much for them. This place has a zoo (even camels), and incredible amount of playground equipment (even a massive tube slide that I would estimate is around 8-10 meters long), great splash pad, gift shop, washrooms, changeroom, snack shop, and a train ride. The train ride is the only thing that costs money. The last I checked, it was $2 per kid; parents ride free. They have an Otter and a Meet the Keeper demo. The Otter feeding is always fun for kids; it is around 1 or 1:30. They love to watch them swimming above and below water. *See my pics for more info. I don't have pics of all of the playground options. Oops, forgot to take a pic of the massive tube slide!
This is one of my favorite day trips. Coming out to this park is a nice get away from the hustle of Toronto. The paths are beautiful. The playground is large and has tons of options. The walkways are gorgeous. Over all this place is beautiful and great for the whole family.
Great little zoo to take young kids. Best part - its free! Also a little train ride $2, a large splash pad and play structure area. A great day!
