Perfect place to take the family. Well kept flora and fauna, lots of children's activities. For city raise kids who've never seen wildlife, this is a must summer attraction. Great for Birthday parties too.

I was excited to go to the zoo this week end to escape city stress. I was there today. I saw very few animals. Most cages were empty. Animals seemed sad. Really disappointed ! Edmonton needs to work hard in terms of attractions and tourism in general.

Kids loved the train ride! The petting zoo is great for small children. Paddle boats were fun. The variety of animals wasn't huge, but there was a lot to see.

We booked a group tour for adults with disabilities. They were awesome. We had the opportunity to hold and touch certain animals where it was quiet away from all the other people. The lady was very informative and made it an enjoyable experience for everyone. The enclosures were all very clean and tidy. The animals looked healthy and happy. We... More

Storyland vally zoo is a great place to take kids. Some of the animals are located in a story atmosphere, such as"three little pigs".
