The Toronto Zoo is very excited to be bringing this unique and one-of-a-kind experience to Toronto this winter. Lumina Night Walk will be a 45 to 60 minute experience beginning at nightfall and engages emotion using storytelling, lighting design, an original soundscape and music, scenography, video and interactive technologies.

In preparation for Lumina Night Walk, we will be experiencing some construction in certain areas throughout the month of October. Thank you for bearing with us through this exciting time of preparations. Tickets for Lumina Night Walk at the Toronto Zoo will be available in November.

Please note the Discovery Zone, including the Kids Zoo, will be closed from Monday, October 7 to Friday, October 11 for Lumina Night Walk construction and preparation.

Please note the Core Woods Pathway – between Discovery Zone and Tundra Trek - will be closed from Tuesday, October 15 to Friday, October 18 for Lumina Night Walk construction and preparation.


Please be advised that the Indo-Malaya Pavilion will be closed until 10:00 am on Thursday, October 24th for a private event. We apologize for the inconvenience.
