Kids Zoo


Learn, laugh and play with the little ones!

Specially designed for our young visitors, the Kids Zoo allows your family to meet and interact with much-loved domestic animals like alpacas, goats, rabbits, woodchucks, and domestic ferrets. Check out the unique photo opportunities as the kids pop up inside a plexiglass bubble to come face-to-face with a guinea pig, dig for dinosaur eggs, whoosh down our tree house’s two storey slide or bird watch in our giant aviary. They'll see much-loved domestic animals like rabbits and goats, and lots more! They may even meet a Zookeeper! It's a special place for kids where they can have fun and learn about Canadian habitats. Plan on taking away some memories to last a lifetime and bring your camera!

Splash Island


Can't BEAR the heat?

Cool off at Splash Island, the perfect destination for a hot summer day! With two acres of hands-on, non-stop family fun amidst waterslides, water-spouting animals, waterfalls, and tipping buckets, our splash pad is the best way to beat the summer heat. The kids will enjoy the cool mist as they explore and learn about which plants and animals live in different bodies of water in Canada. Splash Island is a great way to relax, cool down, and have fun with the kids!
