Calling all animal lovers! There is a great variety of animals and there are different activities for the kids. It's a place you can spend the day. It's a lot if walking so dress for the weather and dress comfortably. It's a great experience.

It was cold and windy that day but the pandas called and we answered! Be prepared for no lines and cold feet. But the animals look well-cared for here. The washrooms are freezing cold but clean.

Loads of animals to choose from. Love that this is outdoors and you can take your time strolling at the pace of all your family members. More areas to sit down and veg wouldn't hurt, or indoor areas for the freezing winter days. :)

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

Hello, If I had younger kids (say under 10 yrs old) I’d say the best time to go would be spring, summer and fall. I personally liked the fall because it was just so pretty to walk the trails and the animals are more active... More
