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.

Hi Cross27, We are from Boston and our 2 little zoo's pale in comparison to Toronto's zoo. The Franklin and Stoneham zoos are small and have mostly common animals that you can find in any zoo. I take a lot of pride from living in Boston but the zoos here are not a strong point. You mentioned that you would travel here for it but not sure that should be the focal point. Zoos that are comparable to Toronto are the National zoo in DC and the North Carolina Zoo.
The Toronto Zoo is a great place to visit especially if you have a love of seeing big and small animals, wild animals and insects etc. The zoo is sectioned off into different countries so make sure you grab a map from the entrance. There is a lot of walking so a great idea is to buy a train bracelet. You can jump on and off and get a lot more covered. Also, there is a person who stays on the train and gives wonderful facts and informations about the Zoo and the animals. Have fun :)
Do they have assistance for people with medical conditions that prevent them from walking too much
The zoo does have a limited number of electric scooters for rent on a first come first serve basis. There is also the zoo mobile, that you can pay to take the train around the park, saving having to walk greater distances. Most paths are accessible to wheelchairs, save some areas like the Canadian section that has a large hill. Perhaps reaching out to the park to discuss specific limitations may help you to better understand if the persons specific needs around mobility can be supported for the trip. They do have an accessibility program out of guest services who would be most helpful. 416-392-5932
Hey! We are coming to the Zoo in early August and I am trying to figure out the best place to stay and/or the best way to get there
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Scarborough and took us about 10 minutes, the GPS said 7 minutes. No issues driving there pretty straightforward. Enjoy and bring your walking shoes 👞. We had fun. Hope this helps you guys out.
Does anyone know of any discount codes for the zoo? The admission is very steep if going with a family with kids over 2yrs.
Affiliated companies and even when you know who the companies are, you still need a proof of employment or ID. I normally make it in for myself due to media access.
For the Serengeti Bush Camp....is there somewhere to charge your phone? Do you ring your own sleeping bag?
Good day! The Serengeti Bush Camp has 2 electrical outlets where cell phones can be charged. One would have to bring their own electrical plugs.Yes, one would have to bring one’s own sleeping bags. How to Prepare for Camp Please dress appropriately for the weather. Please ensure that all personal items are labelled. Here is a checklist of how you can prepare for camp: • Sunscreen - Please ensure that you bring sufficient sunscreen with you for the day • A labelled water bottle and/or labelled re-useable plastic cup • Change of clothes for the following day • Comfortable footwear Please ensure that you have comfortable shoes or footwear as you will be active throughout the evening. Running shoes are the best footwear for Bush Camp due to the walking during tours of the Zoo. Flip flops, Crocs, and/or insecure footwear are not recommended. • Sun hat • Rainwear or umbrella • Toothbrush and toothpaste • Mosquito repellent (optional) • Hand towel and wash cloth • Warm sweater/sweatshirt/jacket/raingear • Deodorant and other toiletries • Pillow, sleeping bag/blankets and Flashlight I hope that answers your questions! Have a fun time.
We are staying in Toronto over Victoria Day. Will the zoo be busier on the Sunday and Monday due to the public holiday? Many thanks Will
Hi there! So happy you will be joining us. It will all depend on the weather and people's decisions but I recommend that you try and come early to avoid any crowds! Have a ZOOper day!
