We spent a whole morning here, it’s easy to get around and the animals seen to have loads of room to wander. It’s a must do/see in Moncton. The goats love being fed and there silly noises had my kids laughing all afternoon

One of the best zoos that we have experienced in Canada! They are heavily involved in breeding programs for endangered species, and provide their animals with really good habitats in which to live and be viewed. The kids really seem to enjoy it!

Hello I would call ahead to book as the zoo is very busy during the summer with both visitors to the area and locals attending as well. I am not sure if they are shared or single kennels. Hope you enjoy the trip

We do not allow dogs in the zoo and have kennels in a shaded area free of charge. If the puppy is very young we can keep him/her in the office in a kennel while you visit the zoo.
