TORONTO, ON, Thursday, January 27, 2022: Your Toronto Zoo is happy to announce we will be re-opening to our valued members and guests on February 10, 2022!  

Why not on January 31 you ask?

While we were closed, we took the opportunity to work on some exciting new elements here at the Zoo including the installation of a new network that will include site wide WIFI; completing washroom renovations at the Africa pavilion; and providing a vaccine booster clinic onsite. We will continue to provide a vaccine booster clinic onsite during our regular Zoo hours, making it even more convenient for Members and Zoo guests to get their 3rd doses. The extended closure enabled us to complete these projects and we look forward to providing our guests with access to free WIFI in the coming months and a Zoo App and supporting experiences in the months ahead!

We will be implementing a 50% capacity limit in our indoor spaces, as well as a mandatory mask policy indoors and in outdoor areas where guests are in close proximity to particularly high-risk animals. Please have your QR code proof of double vaccination with you to show our guest relations team upon arrival.

Thank you for your ongoing support as we adapt to the current re-opening guidelines, ensuring the safety of our animals, guests and staff are always our top priority. We look forward to seeing you soon!
