Toronto Zoo, Toronto

4.0
Canada's largest animal sanctuary, Toronto Zoo shelters over 5,000 animals occupying habitats from seven different zoogeographic regions. Head to the indoor tropical pavilions to see creatures from warmer climates, and then venture to the outdoor habitats, where larger mammals roam spacious areas that mimic their natural environments. Learn about your favorite animals by attending a daily zookeeper talk, and explore exhibits dedicated to baby polar bears, rhinos, pandas, and white lions. Don't miss the award-winning tundra exhibit, designed to teach visitors about the habitats of snow geese, reindeer, snowy owls, and Arctic foxes and wolves. Check the website for available activities, events, and educational programs. For Toronto Zoo and beyond, use our Toronto tour planner to get the most from your Toronto vacation.

  • Great place to take your kids. Expect lots of walking and the smell of poop in certain areas. The kiddos always have a great time and we try to visit at least once a year to see all the animals. Recommended if you are looking for something to do as a family or with your significant other.
  • Such a fantastic place. Attended the Zoo in the Winter and despite it being cold and not many animals being outside, the Zoo atmosphere itself was still a beautiful welcome. The walks between attractions in the Winter could feel longer than that of Summer due to the quietness of both people and animals outdoor, but the walks were very much enjoyable. That cold icey fresh air is the best. We were able see to lots of animals more so in the indoors. The staff is very friendly and the Keepers have scheduled times to talk more on the animals they watch over. Nothing is free. Parking is $12 which should have been included in the price of the ticket. The food can be expensive! A slice of pizza, two orders of fries and two bags of chips hit us at $30. Altogether, it's the Zoo! I would highly recommend visiting anytime of the year, though Summer is obviously the best time. Sometimes I wish I could spend more time around the animals than of the humans in the city!
