With more than 5,000 animals in seven tropical pavilions spread over 220 hectares, an African Savannah exhibit and a commitment to preserve the world's wilderness heritage; no wonder this zoo is rated among the top ten in the world. While committed to research and conservation, Toronto Zoo understands that most people come out to be entertained. With that in mind, it offers everything from rare and colorful fish to pygmy hippos, from the sounds of an Australian night to monitor lizards.
We spent an afternoon in the zoo. My kids (5 and 8) loved it so much. A lot of wild animals there. Only disappointment to them was the polar bear exhibit was not yet open (will open on 8/1/2009 according to its web site).
We were directed to Parking Lot 2. While driving there, it looked like a mile walk back to the main entrance. With the kids and grandparents with us, we decided to have my husband dropping us off first. Then we saw many empty parking spaces in the main parking lot. So my husband went back to the main parking lot, and this time no one was there directing the traffic.
I would suggest going there in the morning if you can. Our experiences from this zoo and many other zoos tell us that many big cats, like tigers, leopards, jaguars and lions, like to take an afternoon nap.
This was the first stop on my vacation and it was magnificent. The zoo reminded me a lot of the one we have in Columbus, OH. It was easily set out and the map was easier to follow. Going earlier in the day is the best bet, as there are considerably less people there. Overall, it was a cool experience. I would put Toronto's zoo up with ours.
I loved going to the Toronto Zoo. It is a lot of walking for a long day but you see so much. The food is reasonably priced, lots of places to sit and rest. There is so much to learn about at the zoo and I can't wait to take my daughter!!
The Toronto Zoo is an awesome place to go... there is so much to learn, so much to see...
It's a perfect place to go on a first date because you can enjoy the scenery, and get to chat at the same time!
The zoo is a great place for the whole family.
I went to the zoo with the hope of seeing a Siberian Tiger, but the Reptiles were playing the Amphibians in an afternoon affair of hockey. The referees were played by Arangatangs and the seals were cheerleaders. And i think i saw an emu in the stands...what a strange day. At half time i shot the moon, got all the hearts and the queen, baby. ;)
