Come spend the day with us from 10 am - 4 pm to listen to some live family-friendly music!
The line-up includes musicians and dancers that will be performing a variety of family-friendly music on stage in our picnic area in the center of the zoo. The acts include:
We will have a BBQ set up in the picnic area, so guests can purchase hamburgers,hotdogs and ice cream while enjoying the entertainment. Boomer (our male lion) is personally inviting you to come for a roaring good time!!!
Bring your family and join the fun for our annual "Family Night in the Wild" events this summer! Starts in July and then in August we are offering a special evening for you and your family to experience sleeping overnight at the Zoo in our magnificent picnic area - right next to where the night animals live!
Once night falls, our guides and volunteers will accompany you on a walking safari throughout the Zoo so you can observe the behaviour of our animals before dusk. This extremely fun-filled event includes hot chocolate and marshmallows while we tell stories, play games and/or sing songs (guitars are welcome).
During the night you will not get much sleep as you will hear the lions roaring, wolves howling and a few feathered friends will make sure you are awake in the morning! This is camping so you need to bring your tent.
And speaking of morning, we will serve you a light breakfast; then you will meet a Zookeeper and learn about an animal plus enjoy a narrated train ride around the perimeter of the Zoo.
Dates available are: July 12 & 26, August 9, 16 & 23

We have been busy reconstructing and organizing the Family Farm area for our re-opening this Saturday July 5th. In the meantime, we have some new residents that just came out of quarantine (30 day quarantine is mandatory for all new animals to the Zoo), so please stop by and...
How cute are they!!!!

Also you can participate in some Canadian games and a scavenger hunt!
Did someone say CAKE - YES we serve some pretty delicious cake at 12:30 pm at the front Zoo map – but don’t be late as it doesn’t last long.
