Went on a busy hot and sunny weekend.
The zoo was very spread out and being in the middle of a forest / park gave it a more natural feel than some other zoos I have been to. They had a good selection of animals from around the world. As a visitor to Canada, I especially liked the Canadian area to see some of the native wildlife.
Almost all the enclosures seemed to have photographers in mind, having either plastic viewing panels or higher viewing platforms which was much appreciated. The best experiences we had on the day were when we happened to be at an enclosure while the keepers were feeding or doing a talk, so would recommend trying to fit some of these into your day.
Main negatives would be the amount of walking in between the main areas, often with nothing to look at in between. Also, on our map they had several eateries as being closed for the season, so we walked back to one we knew was open. It turned out some that it said was closed was actually open :o( very irritating.
Overall a good experience and worth doing.
