About Toronto Zoo, Toronto

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

  • The keepers are super friendly and knowledgeable and the map is easy to follow. The animals were so cute, my boyfriend and I were so excited with all the animals we got to see! We went recently, so some weren't out yet, but overall it was amazing! It's so big we didn't get to finish it all in 1 day so we'll definitely be back when it gets warmer! A great way to spend the day! Definitely pee when you see a bathroom though because sometimes they feel few and far between.

  • I started going to the zoo when I had my baby. I got the membership which for me has been a great value. Its a great way to walk around and see some animals. The zoo keepers clearly love the animals. One great example was our experience at the otter exhibit. My son loves to watch the playful otters. The otter handler came over while he was on his lunch break to talk with us he got the otters to do a bunch of tricks. The kids loved it.

  • An amazing and incredibly huge zoo with something for everyone! We got to see the pandas before they left for Calgary which was a super thrill and an honour. One day is not long enough to see everything! Loved the greenhouse which is now open to the public as well as the impressive new animal hospital. I would recommend planning your day and bringing a packed lunch like we did.

  • Please everyone, if you truly care about animals, please stop going to the zoo! Every ticket you buy is a contribution to the suffering of the animals here ! I've been here once and it was horrid. The orangutan was sitting all alone by himself in the corner, there were no other orangutans in the enclosure with him. He looked depressed as can be. The polar bear was walking around in circles! That's not normal! These animals are depressed and living in a prison for the purpose of our entertainment! So please I implore everyone to please stop going to the zoo. 😢

  • I've been to the zoo at Easter, in the Winter and the Summer. Yes, there are less things open in the Winter, but it's still worth a visit as it's much quieter and less crowded. To be fair as well, the Admission price is cheaper in Winter ($23) than Summer ($29) to reflect this. It's one of the biggest zoos I've ever seen and very impressive in its care of animals and knowledgeable keepers. There is plenty of information on all of them and most of them seem happy in decent spaced environments. There are one or two attractions that involve queueing or going through long exhibits before you get a glimpse of the animals, such as the pandas (soon to leave for Vancouver zoo), but otherwise you are seeing animals all the time, without having to walk large distances to get to them (like other zoos such as Belfast, Northern Ireland). There is also a roundabout and several cafes around the site. The cafes are expensive but sell good, basic food, if you have a family and bring a picnic you can sit inside to eat it if it's cold. Great fun for children and adult animal lovers. Expect a few minutes waiting in queues to get in over the Summer (the longest we've waited was 30 minutes in August so be prepared if you're taking young children) but if you get there early there is no problem. You can, however, get your tickets online in advance (highly recommended) to avoid the queues. I think it's great value considering it takes nearly a whole day to go round all of the exhibits and have lunch. Highly recommended.
