Voted as the top outdoor site in the country, Calgary Zoo features more than 1100 animals from around the world and an ever-growing portfolio of innovative exhibitions, which allows guests to get up close and personal with grizzly bears, moose and wolves. Life-sized dinosaur models lurk in the badlands of the Prehistoric Park, and the more genteel setting of the Botanical Park includes a butterfly garden. See website for event calendar, educational programs, online ticketing and more.
The book Prehistoric Park is an extinction doesn't have to be forever!Travel with Nigel Marven via time portal as he rescues endangered creatures and brings them back to a present day wildlife sanctuary.
The animals were fun to see and learn about. Information was provided for those interested in reading about the animals. The butterfly garden is by far my favourite area in the Calgary Zoo. The food was enjoyable, and the playgrounds were fun for the children.
I would recommend this for one day, but it's not worth coming back. I don't suggest you buy a season pass.
This place covers every country and basically every animal. You get to see exotic animals, along with animals you've probably never heard of, and the standard animals you've always heard of but never seen.
Everything is sectioned off by country, which is interesting because if you're not a reading person you don't have to read the blurbs to know where they come from; you just have to know what building youre in.
They also have exotic species of plants, an entire building for night animals and an island entirely for prehistoric animals, dinosaurs.
I found this zoo very fulfilling and I intend on going back next time I'm in Calgary. From gorillas to giraffs, to lions and tigers, to zebra and a million kinds of monkeys and hippopotamus and more all keep me busy and entertained of at least five hours of enjoyment.
The Calgary zoo is awesome! I love going there, and i liked it so much now im an ambassador for the zoo. Between being devious at Boo at the Zoo and being an elf at Winter Funderland for Zoolights, the atmosphere is great, and the employees are so nice.
The Calgary zoo is an excellent place to go when visiting the great city of Calgary. The zoo offers a large selection of animals to see including hippos, Siberian tigers, giraffes and gorillas.
The Calgary zoo also has a beautiful botanical garden. The garden includes plants from the desert, the rain forest as well as plants able to grow outside in Calgary's climate.
The prehistoric park at the Calgary zoo is also something worth checking out but only if you have children. The prehistoric park is made up of dinosaur statues and big rocks for kids to climb on. The Calgary zoo is definitely worth seeing when you visit Calgary.
my self and my husband went (no kids) and we are in our 40s. we were told it was great but it was better than that. set in lovely landscape so you never knew what was around the corner. after 3 hrs we were worn out but still came away not having seen everything.
food in the restaurant was also excellant , fantastic choice ( we had our 1st chili cheese hot dog) and cheap
