A day in the wild

Opened in 1974, the Toronto Zoo is where anyone can come be in awe of the wildlife that surronds the globe.

A day at this zoo is a day filled with wonder and inspiration for kids and kids at heart. Let’s take a look at some of the amazing attractions you can expect to see when you visit the Toronto Zoo, just off Rouge Park in Scarborough.

As one of the most highly regarded zoo’s in the world, the Toronto Zoo often gets to play temporary host to a variety of especially rare and unique animals including the recent 5-year stay by giant panda couple Da Mao and Er Shun who even had babies while here. The Zoo has also hosted golden monkeys, koalas, and Tasmanian devils just to name of few. There’s no telling what the next exhibit might be.

Most of the 710 acres of the zoo are divided into seven zoogeographic regions so you can spend time learning not just about a particular animal but more about their environments as well. The regions are: Indo-Malaya, Africa, Americas, Tundra Trek, Australasia, Eurasia, and the Canadian Domain. It’s a great way to divide the zoo into the actual different global environments so if you’re more interested in the Savana vs the Rainforest you can park your group in one area of the zoo without wasting time moving around, although we definitely suggest seeing it all.

Kid Zone

>> If you’ve got children, the Discovery Zone is a great place to let them learn about wildlife while also getting up close and personal with it. The Kids Zoo allows children to interact with certain animals while the Waterside Theatre hosts live demonstrations with a variety of cool animals including alpacas, falcons, skunks, ferrets, and more

As you depart, we’re sure that some part of everyone in your group will be wondering if it’s time to consider a career in zoology.

With so much to see and do at the Toronto Zoo you’ll be thrilled when you realize that the largest zoo in Canada is just a quick trip from Tricycle Condominiums, where you’ll enjoy living a life filled with amazing amenities, in a community filled with attractions like the world class Toronto Zoo.
