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 Calgary Zoo is an amazing tourist attraction in Calgary. It's ideal for families. We love it so much we bought a family pass and we take all our visitors there.
They have fantastic youth programs and an incredible conservation program.
We love to check out the new Destination Africa Exhibit but there's lots of fantastic enclosures to visit (especially the tigers).
Except for the cooler climate, I think it rivals the San Diego Zoo in terms of quality of experience, care for the animals, and extent of their conservation efforts.
The animals were great and our 4yr old son enjoyed it but got really tired from the walking we were doing b/c I really think the building and signs should be WELL marked out. It would be nice if maybe there was some type of self tour you could clearly follow to see everything. We spent 4 hours there and some of that time was re-walking the same places we had already been. It was mid July and really hot. Good thing we brought our own snacks and drink b/c the ones there were WAY too much after admission price!!The hippo tank, giraffes and elephants were awesome. May come back if the prices change admission was $20 per adult and our 4yr old son was $ 10 = $50.00!!!
as an english tourist we visited the zoo.
we have a large zoo near us in chester but
found this zoo more interesting. seeing the hippos swimming is spectacular, we dont have that in england, we also dont have bears anymore in our zoos, so seeing the magnificent animals was well worth a visit.
if we hear of anyone visiting calgary we will tell them to make sure they visit it.
it is cheaper to visit than english zoos and the admit one free voucher was a good idea.
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.
I loved it all so did my family,I lived in Banff as a younger women and couldn't wait to have a child and bring him here ,he was 7 last year and LOVED the adventures of seeing new things/displayes and yes the caves ,wee are planning another trip and not only are we coming back ...but im taking him to Heritage Park another favorite of mine and he loves History so I cannot wait to share this with him.WOW they have a train know...The Zoo is a must see for EVERYONE
