Toronto Zoo

Toronto, Canada
4.6 / 85
Locals consider their zoo the best in North America (in their opinion, all the best is in Toronto). The city zoo really boasts of size and species diversity. The whole territory is divided into thematic zones, each of which has its own microclimate. Among the interesting pavilions are Mayan Ruins, African Savannah, Australian and American Pavilions.



I had a fantastic visit to the Toronto Zoo! The diverse range of animals and well-maintained habitats truly impressed me. The staff's dedication to conservation and education was evident through informative displays and interactive experiences. .. Read more »
We participated in the "Love Scarborough" event where we raised money for the Scarborough Hospitals. This event was celebrated at the Toronto Zoo, so participants were given entry. However, the visit left me feeling profoundly disappointed... Read more »
Lovely place, lots of walking. Amazing seeing all the animals. Seeing the enjoyment and happiness they brought my children made my day. My 4 year old hasn't stopped talking about the white handed gibbon and the noises it was making.
The zoo is a fun place for families and friends. Wear comfortable walking shoes, stay hydrated and have fun. There is lot of food and drinks on sale throughout the 700 acres of land. There is adequate parking. Lots of picnic areas, washrooms and vend.. Read more »
We had a great family day there. We were a bit disappointed that there were no elephants, and several animals were not "viewable". I liked the balance between indoor and outdoor exhibits. I enjoyed going behind the waterfall. The pictures b.. Read more »
Get a 20% discount on admission when you give them your presto card seems like a better option than buying online/in advance if you don’t mind a little bit of a wait. Had a fun 5 hours and 20000 steps in. There were a few animals off display be.. Read more »
A large zoo with 7 different areas based on the continents, I think. Each area sports a different environment with different animals with ample space for them to roam around and some even coexist. Some of the animals though are off display due to wea.. Read more »
It's fun for little kids and a great educational space to learn about various animals around the world. Maybe it's the time of year we went, not too many animals are out on display. There's some nice boardwalks and pathways throughout .. Read more »
Most favorite place to go with a toddler. We visited end of May. We loved all the sections, African section is my favorite. Easy to spend half day or more here. Easy walking paths mostly, so toddlers can walk, we still rented the zoo stroller , our l.. Read more »
The zoo itself is nice and clean. (reason for which I have rated 2 stars, and not 1) It was disappointing to see so many animals not on display in some sections of the zoo. The zoo services are awful. The worst are the zoo mobile and membership ser.. Read more »

Always a great experience at the zoo! Lots of parking available and transit close by. Arrived early and there was a small line that moved quickly. Lots of different areas to see which helps spread out any crowds. Food on site is okay, nothing special.. Read more »
The zoo is really nice. I like the atmosphere and the husbandry methods. It is amazing and you should spend half of a day, if you wanna visit all the animals. African part is the best part of the zoo. Hippos are really lovely and giraffes are amazing.. Read more »
Had a fabulous time! So hard to choose a favourite area. It was so well laid out and really a great time. We had fantastic weather, which of course helped, but there's a lot of indoor exhibits, so if it rained we would have been fine too. Oh and.. Read more »

Great Zoo, wide variety of animals and sites to visit. Lots to do and to see. Highly recommended if you're visiting Toronto just make sure you planned a full day and show up early. Just wish they had some sort of hotel or simply rooms on site .. Read more »
The Toronto Zoo is amazing. You can tell that their first priority is the animals, and it's shown through their care and attention to detail. I went while the was an outbreak of avian flu so most birds were in areas inaccessible to the public f.. Read more »
The experience was okay. If there were more animals to see, it would have been better. Spent around 5 hours and walked the entire complex and just saw less than 15 animals. But the experience was good. Oh, also, the staff was very knowledgeable... Read more »
Ensure to have an entire day free & if possible get in early to stroll around all the regions of the zoo. Ample parking space and charges are additional to the ticket. It's a good place for children to enjoy their time as well as learn about.. Read more »
The zoo is a beautiful place to walk around and enjoy both the animals and the natural scenery. There are so many exhibits and animals that it is hard to cover everything in one day. We purchased a membership and love it! My son loves seeing the anim.. Read more »

As a person who have visited zoos in "developing countries" like Vietnam and Thailand, Toronto Zoo is not even half as good. Most of the animals are lethargic and depressed and are too far to bee seen from the viewing section. The zoo has .. Read more »

My kids' favorite trip destination, penguins and flamingos are always fun to watch. On weekends expect 30min+ waiting times for food. Weekdays are not bad although after getting a "kids burger" that was just a bun and a patty, I'm.. Read more »
It's an incredible and interesting place. It's magical to see so many animals and species in such a great location. A great job by staff, and the animals are all well cared for. I'm not giving it five stars only as I feel that some of .. Read more »
Love this place. Some of the animals areas were a little to small for that type of animal which I didn't like. They have a lot of land they could do more with it. Thought they could reduce their price a bit sense a lot was not open. Their gift s.. Read more »
We were greeted at the front gate by very friendly, helpful employees who directed is to the best route. The animals were very cooperative as they were near the viewing glass or at the front of the enclosures. I also noticed that the gardens are part.. Read more »

Great family outing, even with all the Cvid restrictions in place. Clean and well organized. sanitation stations well situated and distancing being followed by most guests. Very friendly staff and most animals are outdoors to facilitate observation. .. Read more »
As a member, the member's preview is one of the best experiences of the zoo, as it limits capacity and allows lots of space for a good look at things. It's with a big breath of relief that the zoo is open again, the new goat enclosure is aw.. Read more »

With a four year older who loves animals, we have been to this place so many times. We also organized her birthday party with almost 10 families there. It is a great place to plan play dates or just a quick walk through after weekend lunch time. We a.. Read more »
a day in nice weather to explore because it is a large area to cover. If you are traveling with kids or older folks, there is a train ride for people who do not like to walk. The gorillas and monkeys were a highlight for me, very expressive and intel.. Read more »

Had a wonderful time at the zoo. Family went for the day and got to see most of the park. Part of it was sectioned off because of an event but still well worth the trip. The staggered entry times makes the lines very sort and everyone was trying thei.. Read more »

I went during covid-19 (2020 Sep 13). Their public health measures were good. All indoor facilities has a staff outside to ensure people are wearing masks. And they always open the exhibit door for you as well. There are arrows guiding people to ensu.. Read more »
The Zoo never disappoints and today was no exception. Only reason for the 4 star rating is due to many of the attractions not being open due to Covid. So more of a warning to goers to check what's open and what's not to make sure you brin.. Read more »
I think I went at a wrong time during COVID. Went last week and there wasn’t much to see. Just some animals like other zoos. Expected a little cz it’s one of the best zoos in the world. So many places closed. Very high price for food and .. Read more »
The place is so clean but the animals was so lazy this day ??
Wild tales family camping was a blast. Well staffed and organized, dinner and breakfast were nothing to write home about, but definitely acceptable. The sites are flat(ish), definitely big enough, with a picnic table and access to central washrooms. .. Read more »
