  • Makes me embarrassed to live nearby. An expensive day looking at sad and tired animals. no need to avoid it, its closed now.  more »
  • Always enjoyed our visits, no hassles, just the right size for young children, free parking, friendly staff, not a lot of walking.  more »
  • This zoo is nice and simple! The kids loved it! It needs to be protected and encouraged by tourism. The zoo is currently being put down for reasons that nobody has any proof of. This is the oldest privately owned zoo in Canada, don't you think it should be helped instead of shutdown!? We don't close something that lasted this long over ridiculous speculations. Not one single person wasn't enjoying there day. The food is good, the cost is low, the staff is amazing and sweet and we even had a chance to hold a baby lion cub in our arms. Give it a chance or give it a try. It is a nice family place to go. The splash pad is also very nice so kids love to cool out. Please save the zoo and go encourage it :)
  • It was a really fun zoo at one time, but they closed down.I past there and someone reopen it, there seem to be some activities going on for younger families people kids.I gave 5 star for the Bowmanville zoo it really was great love it.If I ever do find out later will up date the info.
