Toronto Zoo - Review
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, Toronto Reviews
Toronto Zoo has always been one of my favourite places to visit in the city. The zoo property is very large and we'll laid out with large enclosures for the animals. I have been to a number of large city zoos and most do not have as large enclosures. There are daily meet the keeper sessions for many of the animals which allow the visitors to be educated about the animals they see. The zoo seems to be very active with working with endangered species through captive breeding programs and inter zoo exchanges for breading. My favourite animal to visit is always the gorillas and in particular the senior grey back Charles. It would appear that many in society do not see the value of zoos and feel animals should not be held in captivity but the Toronto so bridges the gap very successfully.
An absolutely amazing day for a family. Great value for the price of admission. The enclosures are very impressive and the level of care that the animals are receiving is equally impressive. I would have given the zoo five stars if the bathrooms had been clean, they were kind of gross. Also an upgrade of their water fountains to include a refillable water bottle system would be nice and seemingly in line with the values of the zoo. It was nice to see that they use cardboard straws, more businesses should follow that example!!!
Has changed a lot since visiting two years ago. I really kept hoping the experience would get better as the day progressed. Sadly it didn’t. Unfortunately, a lot of exhibits were closed and food options were limited. Perhaps it is recommended to bring a picnic lunch? Sometimes its refreshing not to have to prepare food and lug around a cooler. I just hadn’t realized that there would just be pizza, $$ snack foods and a coffee shop that already overpopulates the province. A picnic lunch would not have made up for the lack of animals and staff. Maybe it was related to the summer weather, but you would think maybe the Zoo would have prepared for this and had more indoor exhibits. I’m not discouraging anyone to go but just keep this in mind before investing too much into this attraction.
I absolutely love this zoo. It has the widest variety of animals I've ever seen. The idea of grouping the animals by continent also allows for a bit of a geography lesson for the kiddies on the way through. You definitely need to wear your walking shoes as it's a LOT of walking..... But it's so worth it. As an aside I recommend going in the off season. During the heat of summer the animals are pretty immobile. They are far more active in the cooler months and my kids have always enjoyed these trips way more!
Zoo was great. Lots to see and do and super clean. Lots of walking so I think the zoo mobile or trolley or whatever they call it is worth it if it's super hot and if you have small children. Also not all resturants are open, different ones open on different days so if you don't bring food plan accordingly. Food choices are limited but was very tasty. Kids really enjoyed the gorilla climb apparatus. The price was good! Canadian pavilion is far and up a steep hill so be prepared if you plan to visit it.
