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 - Write a Review

  • I visited a week ago on a cold and rainy day, so it wasn't crowded. Most people were there for the pandas and they are very cute. Lots of information about them and volunteers at info booths before you get to the enclosure. Signage: keep the paper map handy because some areas aren't marked very well. Education: newer exhibits have a lot of info, older exhibits have very little. As a zoo, I think education is more important than entertainment value. Yes, it's interesting to see rhinos, penguins, and giraffes, but it's important to learn about them too. Otherwise, might as well go to a natural history museum. Time: I spent the whole day here and saw almost everything (except the Canadian area). You can probably visit 1-2 areas in half a day. Facilities: many washrooms and rest spots nearby every exhibit. Food: I went on the weekend and there weren't many choices. I'm glad I packed lunch. Overall: fascinating but needs an upgrade.

  • Amazing. The zoo is well maintained and there are a lot of beautiful animals that you may not have seen before. Totally worth the trip to the zoo. Yearly pass recommended as the zoo is huge so you do need to visit it multiple times to see the whole thing. On one of our trips one of our family was very ill and the zoo's security and medical staff were first class. Definitely a place to visit.

  • Clean and well-kept. Many things to do and see, you can easily spend a few days seeing everything. I've only been on off-peak days, so I can't comment on traffic within the zoo. An extremely large collection of varied species, as well as some rare creatures. From a Zoological standpoint: Some animals are obviously stressed, and some enclosures do not provide enrichment for the animals. Some enclosures are a bit cramped, or oddly laid out, either making it difficult to view and observe, or the exact opposite: not many spots for the animals to seek refuge from visitors.

  • Loved it. We went on a Tuesday in the fall. It was nice and quiet. The landscaping is incredible. The animals all looked in such good condition and very happy in their habitats. We were fortunate to see all the animals and it was such a great experience. Loved all the builds with birds butterflies turtles and fish. Plus watching the big cats eat was awesome.

  • I love going to the Toronto Zoo! It's a great sized zoo with lots to do and a pretty fair price. The animals have a good amount of room to run around in, which us really important in a zoo. I've been here about 5 times in my 19 years of living and I love it today just as much as I did when I was 7
