I bought an annual pass for the zoo because I enjoy walking it for both exercise and pleasure. This is by far the best way to fully appreciate the value of the zoo. The zoo is designed around the welfare of the animals rather than...More

$26 per person plus parking? Seriously? Fam of four for an hours entertainment over a hundred bucks. Nonsense.

We attended, two adults and a toddler and had a lovely morning exploring this beautiful park. There is an impressive number of animals here and their habitats are generous and allow for solitude for the animals if they wish to remain unseen.

The zoo is not well kept and the animals look very sad and barely move. And for $25 per adult it is definitely not worth it. There were more kids playing at the park than looking at the animals b/c there's nothing to see. Do...More

My son didn't really enjoy the exhibit. He is very sensitive and usually loves animals. I am lead to believe the animals are entirely not happy! Lots of pacing and sitting in the sun... exhausted of the cage life? They did not appear like they...More

I struggle seeing animals in captivity but it was interesting for the kids to see some wildlife they will likely not see in the mountains. The one negative thing I would say is this is another spot in our driving trip that had no plan...More

We visited the zoo with young children last weekend. The zoo train was down for maintenance so that was disappointing but the state and condition of the zoo in general was terrible. Worn down, old, many empty exhibits and to see the animals in those...More

Overpriced. Not many things to see. I have seen many zoos and for a city like vancouver this is almost embarrassing. The best part was that our family rented bikes (over priced) to bike around. You'll be fine in under 2 hours.

I would say be prepared for 4-5k if you want to see everything. It's flat and well maintained. You can rent a large pedal cart that fit two adults and two young kids but honestly walking it is best.
