  • We surprisingly stayed for over 2 hours. Dress for the weather as it's outdoors. A lot of animals to see. Train ride is only $1 per person (cash only). Good to visit when you're in Kamloops.  more »
  • I have been visiting the Wildlife Park since 1992 when we moved to Kamloops. The animals and facilities are all well taken care of. Staff is friendly and informative. It is a great place to take the family for a stroll in the fresh air while finding all the different animals. I love the feeding times when you get to learn more about the featured animal. The mini train is always a must-do with the kiddos. The kids play area is great fun all year round and love the water spray area in the summer. I am thankful we have the Wildlife Park in our city!
  • What a great setup! Lots to see. A little Bee maze, lots of bears, even a rare spirit bear. Goats and mountain goats, sheep and big horned sheep. Buffalo, bobcats, bears, bald eagles and elk. We loved riding the train, and for a dollar each it's worth it! Cool down with an ice cream snack at the caboose. It might be better to come when the weather is slightly cooler as we didn't see much of the bears, hiding from the sun! Bathrooms are nice. There are lots of spaces for picnicking too. As always, exit through the gift shop!
