Visited the park in late September and it was wonderful. Caught feeding time for the grizzlies (10 am) and later, the raptor show. The animals were quite active and entertaining. A great place to spend a few hours!

We visited Kamloops on our way from Jasper to Whistler. This was a great way to see some of Canada's amazing animals!

Had a great time. The kids enjoyed the park, the playground and running around looking for the animals.

The park specializes in wildlife mostly found in BC, so it's really cool to see Grizzly Bears and wolves close up. I've been twice and have never seen the cougar though. She's pretty good at hiding.

Great place that does incredible work! It is beautiful to walk thru and observe wildlife that are here because they can no longer live on their own in the wild. The animals all look healthy, well cared for, many were orphaned and have grown up...More
