First Aid and Family Centre

  • This centre is located between the African Rainforest Pavilion and Africa restaurant. Lost children are brought to the Family Centre. The First Aid & Family Centre is available for baby changing and feeding along with privacy for nursing mothers. This centre also offers first aid with private treatment areas available for visitors who require personal care.

Access 2 program


The Toronto Zoo has partnered with Easter Seals Canada and is now a participant in the Access 2 program. The Access 2 program provides a dignified and positive entertainment experience for people with disabilities who require the support of an attendant. Program participants receive Access 2 wallet cards which allow simple identification, removing the onus to explain their need for an attendant. Cardholders receive 50% admission discount while their attendants receive complimentary admission when visiting the Zoo.

In addition to the Toronto Zoo the Access 2 card is accepted at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Casa Loma, the CN Tower, Ontario Place, the Ontario Science Centre, the Royal Ontario Museum, as well as Cineplex Entertainment, Empire Theatres and Landmark Cinemas. To learn more about the Access 2 program visit www.access2card.ca.
