Kids Zoo


Some Fun Four-Legged Friends Are Waiting to Meet You!

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 artifacts, whoosh down our tree house’s two storey slide or bird watch in our giant aviary. They'll see much-loved domestic animals like alpacas and goats, and lots more! They may even meet a Toronto Zoo Keeper! 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!
