The Toronto Zoo is a wonderful tourist attraction. Kids and adults alike enjoy visiting this place a lot. Why is that you ask? Well, the Toronto Zoo has no less than 5000 animals on display. The Species range from rainforest dwelling animals to the inhabitants of the Tundra and everything in between. People not only enjoy watching these animals but end up learning a lot about them through the displays.
The displays have been enhanced and separated according to the original geographical location of each animal. Not only this, several rare animal species like Lemurs, Tamarins and Penguins have all been brought here to conserve them. Mammals, reptiles and birds all find a happy, healthy home here. It is a great idea to take kids here to teach them more about animals and conservation. A wonderful pit stop on a family holiday, this place is a must visit.

Toronto zoo is a fantastic place. The staff are friendly and always take time to talk to the kids. They inform and explain clearly and obviously care very deeply about the welfare of the animals. The zoo is integral to teaching our daughter about conservation and animal protection. Love the place.
It's a great place, if you have the chance don't hesitate. Two very important thing to know: prepare for a long day of walking, we arrived at 9:30 and leave at 4:00 and didn't finish the whole thing. Second, if you are coming with kids, even if they are first graders, get carts for then; you can rent a stroller for something like 10 bucks at the zoo boutique, trust me it's worth it!
It's a wonderful zoo. The best I have seen so far. There are multiple regions, each specific to a continent/sub continent. You will find lots of animals from that particular region. It's organized pretty good. The zoo is so big, you would definitely need more than a day. I loved my visit there, very much. I highly recommend visiting there.
I have never had a bad experience here, I have been coming here since I was a kid and I will continue till I can't anymore. There is tons to do and tons to see. I really enjoy seeing the looks on kids faces when they get to see all these exotic animals for the first time. I really like that all of the animals have good sized enclosures and all look happy. They have tons of different animals and it will easily take you all day to see and admire each one of them. I can't wait till my next trip back, thanks Toronto Zoo!
Love the Toronto zoo! Lots of different animals to visit and they are well kept. If you have kids you can get a family pass for unlimited visits throughout the year. Great place for photography as well
