Though they have some great animals to be seen, this zoo is not well maintained:( They have a lot of wire fences that make it hard to truly view some of the best animals. Unlike the Seattle or other zoos decently close that are in...More
Although we have visited the zoo many times before, this time we noticed some changes. The staff were dressed up for Halloween and very interactive with the visitors. There were some great details including blankets and hot cocoa for all to enjoy on the train!!...More
I visited with my senior parents on a beautiful sunny day. We arrived just after they opened and caught the 10:30 train ride. It's a great way to get your bearing and see & learn about the animals. It is a lot of ground to...More

An often overlooked attraction by tourists visiting Metro Vancouver, the zoo is a great place for a family to view and learn about many animals. The reasons that it is overlooked include the distance of the Zoo from most other attractions and the lack of...More
Surprised by the disrepair of the zoo facilities. Expensive admission + pay-parking makes for a very expensive outing with the family. The number of animals is surprisingly sparse, with many enclosures empty and not even maintained. The amenities (souvenir shop and refreshment area) are pitiful....More
