Canada's largest animal sanctuary, Toronto Zoo shelters over 5,000 animals occupying habitats from seven different zoogeographic regions. Head to the indoor tropical pavilions to see creatures from warmer climates, and then venture to the outdoor habitats, where larger mammals roam spacious areas that mimic their natural environments. Learn about your favorite animals by attending a daily zookeeper talk, and explore exhibits dedicated to baby polar bears, rhinos, pandas, and white lions. Don't miss the award-winning tundra exhibit, designed to teach visitors about the habitats of snow geese, reindeer, snowy owls, and Arctic foxes and wolves. Check the website for available activities, events, and educational programs. For Toronto Zoo and beyond, use our Toronto tour planner to get the most from your Toronto vacation.

Toronto Zoo reviews
Lots of walking between animals. Seriously small inclosures for the animals. We left before we got all the way thru. Chimpanzee looked very sad in his very small area. Would not recommend! Come visit.... 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. 😍😍😍😍
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 we rented a stroller, which was a great idea! And the gift shop was not overpriced and had really nice items.
It is always a great experience to take my kids to visit the zoo, whether in summer, fall or even winter. Very entertaining, educational and informative for everyone! The new addition of the arctic wolf, young and playful cheetahs and a small waterfall show you how the zoo is still working hard to attract visitors while we all miss the elephants and giant pandas.
The Toronto Zoo is a awesome family experience. This was our first time at the Toronto Zoo and we loved it. Besides the great exhibition... seeing my son so happy and enjoying, it makes it just wonderful and priceless. Everything is great and we'll maintained. We learned a lot as well. Lots of walking so come prepared with a good stroller if needed, comfy shoes and lots of liquids/refreshments. They do have lots of vending points with great options. Unfortunately I didn't catch her name, but I went for an adult refreshment, and the lady assisting there was super polite, friendly and helpful.... besides funny, she made an awesome joke of my beer selection. Kudos to her and for having so wonderful staff. Fully recommended and is a must family experience 😉😁😎🤟🏻🇨🇦🍁
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 animals from various geographical areas. Stroller accessible, also has rentals available. Clean washrooms in America's and has food joints as well as picnic spots every few meters. They have a wide variety of animals in the Eurasia & Canadian domain, but others just had a few of them. Huge space, could have been used more effectively.
