I was skeptical about what a zoo in Saskatoon would offer but we were pleasantly surprised with the attractions and the layout, even in February. When we visited, there was a small winter festival on and we were treated to a great demonstration of ice-carving. We will return in the summer.

This zoo has a good selection of animals from other places but the really interesting animals are the ones from around here. It really makes the zoo an interesting place for visitors to see up close animals from Saskatchewan. Even for local people, these animals are very interesting to see. Pronghorn antelope, bison, and lynx come to mind as animals... More

The animals were more active than we expected. My boyfriend literally communicated with the cougar. It was fun to watch and listen to them banter back and forth. The bald eagle was magnificent. My other favourite was the grizzlies playing in their pool. I think this was my first time to visit the zoo in winter as I normally have... More

I have been to the Forestry Farm on many occasions, with classes of students, for a BBQ, with family or friends and I never tire of it. You can tour the areas with the animals, take a walk to the trout pond where you can actually fish or spend some time at the park where your kids can slide, climb... More

I love going to the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo for the fresh-air experience and seeing the animals - all in a natural setting. There are so many things to see and since it's a large area to cover, one could take a train ride around with an interpretive guide explaining about the animals and the history of everything....

The forestry farm never disappoints. From the always friendly and funny bears to the red panda and wolves there is always something moving around to get your attention. Could use more of a family food rest setup.

A nice stroll with lots of animals and a small children section. It is a well set up zoo with lots of great changes coming. Lots of picnic sites and a trout pond in the Forestry Farm Park and some nice flower gardens. Also a wonderful Christmas light drive through in December and January
