This is a wonderful, small zoo. Several unique animals including ones native to the area. We went in the afternoon and we did see animals but like other reviewers mentioned, they were less active at that time. It’s probably best to visit earlier in the...More

Three adults and a senior. $62. Felt quite a bit overpriced for what we saw. Signage lacking, and few staff and volunteers to explain the exhibits and how to get the most from our visit. Value was about half of what we paid.

An easy 20-30 minute drive from the center of Montreal. At a leisurely pace we were able to explore fully in 2.5 hours. The animals are comfortable with visitors, so it gave us the chance to see them up close in a fairly natural setting....More
