The zoo is pretty small but it's also cheap to get into so I didn't feel like it was a rip-off. There are lots of animals, unfortunately it was difficult to see some of them. It was a nice little wander round though, for a good afternoon.

Kids loved the train ride! The petting zoo is great for small children. Paddle boats were fun. The variety of animals wasn't huge, but there was a lot to see.

We booked a group tour for adults with disabilities. They were awesome. We had the opportunity to hold and touch certain animals where it was quiet away from all the other people. The lady was very informative and made it an enjoyable experience for everyone. The enclosures were all very clean and tidy. The animals looked healthy and happy. We... More

It is nice to be able to get so close to Lucy the elephant. A zoo is a place where one can go for a walk and feel like you are in many other countries with all the different animals.

The animal enclosures are quite small. Some of animals were pacing a lot like they were upset. There is absolutely no room for the elephant, who seemed like it was lonely to not have a companion. I would contend that if the zoo can't provide adequate room and companionship for its animals then it should probably convert to some thing... More

The Edmonton Zoo can be a very enjoyable day out with the kids as long as you keep in mind this is a facility in transition. The Zoo is geared to smaller children and offers a pleasant walk around the exhibits, paddle boats, carrousel rides, petting area, and a rubber-tired train ride around a section of the zoo. It is...
