The improvements at the Valley Zoo are a good thing! I love how they are changing to focus on animals that are native to our climate, and making the animal enclosures less like cages. I like to bring a picnic and stay for most of the day to make the price of admission worth it.
Hopefully they do the Zoominescence lights again this winter, it is a neat display!

Great for families. red pandas, lemurs, Lucy the painting elephant. Connected to the river valley park system.
Laurier park is adjacent if you want to picnic.

15 to 20 minutes away. Great way to spend a day, regular feature exhibits. Amazing regular animal, birds, reptiles, and so much more. Take the train ride, well worth it.

It's a teeny tiny zoo with a very controversial elephant named Lucy. Bob Barker has been here -- that's a hint.
