I always try to make sure if I visit an animal attraction that it's one that treats it's one that treats their animals well. I have only heard good things about the Toronto Zoo, and they seemed to care about their animals, and it was clean! I feel like this is a very worthwhile zoo to visit to see some... More

The zoo has always been fun, just prepare yourself for some walking. The panda exhibit was on when we were there and it was neat. Do yourself a favour and unless your really into animals from North America, skip that area as it is a massive and long downhill to the area, which makes it a brutal uphill climb on... More

We have had a zoo pass for years. Best value for your money. Lots of animals great in winter or summer. In winter you bundle up and when cold go in the buildings. In summer they have an awesome water area to cool down in.

The Metro Toronto Zoo Come and see over 5000 different animals. WOW!!! It's humungous here. So much beautiful land to walk through and experience the animals in their own habitat. You can feed the giraffes, or ride a camel🐫. Go into the dark where you can see the bat🦇exhibit. Really fascinating! Do you love snakes?🐍. Then check out the Boa... More

This is a great place to spend the day. You can have a picnic or you can buy food in the park. The kids really enjoyed the day here.

This zoo was well laid-out and easy to navigate. Since my sister and I arrived kind of late, the girl working guided us on where to go and how to make the most of our visit. We were pleased with gift shops and facilities. Even though we didn't have much time, we saw a nice variety of animals. The highlight... More

While the kids were small, we were the members for many years. It's worth every penny of the membership. Today, we don't go there this frequently any more, but when we do, we enjoy it thoroughly every time.

This is a world class facility. It is well laid out and it takes quite a lot of time to tour the entire zoo. We always plan on spending the entire day there when we go. There is lots of walking but also lots to see. The exhibits are large and spacious and the animals have lots of room to... More

This place is gigantic. Which is amazing because that means the exibits have the nicest most spacious habitats I've seen. It's clean and has a large variety of animals.

Staying in Scarborough

Neighbourhood Profile
Scarborough
Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a district heavily influenced by immigration. With a number of low-rent shopping and dining options making it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for bargains and discounts. It also draws in photographers. The spires, archways, and cavernous rooms of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Palace are filled with breathtaking art, architecture, and detailed reliefs – it’s like entering a different world, The ruins of columns and installation art at the Guild Inn makes a free-for-all exploration site, while the big-name draw for young photographers is the menagerie at the Toronto Zoo. While many visitors shirk Scarborough as too suburban, its houses are some of Toronto's most mystical and haunting architectural beauties. And for adventure lovers, it has river-rafting and some unique hiking trails.
