“A great family outing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

I take my children to the wildlife park anywhere from 4-6 times a year. If yuo want to get the most of the day, go early (as soon as the park opens) while the animals are feeding and active. Take a picnic. there are lots of tables and it is a really fun family outing.

“Temperature determines if the Animals are available”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2013

We have come here several times and thought it was fun for an afternoon. Most of the time it seemed that the animals were hiding, so we didn't get to see all animals. Last summer was our first visit that we saw all of them, so that was very impressive and enjoyable. It's best to go with spring to early summer weather. More chance of seeing all the animals. They also hold different types of events for the kids which we've taken advantage of and enjoyed very much such as Easter Egg hunts and the Haunted Woods tour.

Best time to go is a cloudy day , animal tend to stay in shaded areas where you cant see them when it is hot and sunny,You can also bring a picnic basket and make a great family day adventure.You can also fish or let the children play in the park.

“Family day”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2012

I visited the park just recently and was discusted with the washroom facilities not only at the playground but also inside the administration building itself, you had to fight off the cobwebs and the spiders before entering the washroom, I wasn't impressed with some of the animals not having any water and it was a very hot day, the grounds around the cages were unkept, the barn with the horses was very unkept and the poor horses looked like they weren't brushed for months and the inside was just as filty, I realize it's a barn but it can be cleaned up better than that, i also realize that the park is probually facing cutbacks like everyone else but please do a better job with these poor animals or shut it down, they deserve better, my opinion.

“Fun for the whole family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 September 2012

Growing up in Cape Breton, Two Rivers is a staple in family fun every summer. They have many enclosures with beautiful animals and the opportunity to teach young children about nature and wildlife as well as how to care for animals. Admission is reasonably priced. Bring your own lunches and you can enjoy a family picnic near the pond, dad can catch some fish for supper back home and mom can read a book while the kids play on the playground. Don't forget your camera as there are lots of opportunities to take some great pictures of the whole family.

(no recent visit - it's been about two years since we were there, but this site does not go back far enough in time frames.)
