Toronto Zoo is celebrating 45 years!

Join us on Thursday, August 15, 2019 to celebrate our 45th anniversary and enjoy 45% off admission! Plus, stay late (9am-9pm) for Dawn to Dusk Thursdays.

The Toronto Zoo has been Canada’s premier Zoo since 1974! When the Zoo first opened its doors, it was considered to be the most innovative and forward-thinking zoo in the world. 45 years later, we are a leader in saving and protecting species at home and abroad, and are extremely proud of the work we do in animal health, nutrition, scientific research, reproduction, conservation, education, animal welfare and connecting people like you to wildlife.

Let’s Celebrate!
