“Christmas lights display was the best visit”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Been here many times and it varies but it is pretty good.
Depends on the weather, spring with the new babies is very good.
Impressive large bison bull
Good place to take little kids and the express train ride is fun for the kids as well. It offers a free guided tour of the Farm.

“One of My Favourite Places as a Kid”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I loved the Forestry farm when I was little running from enclosure to enclosure, fishing in the pond, BBQ at the available stands, playing in the playgrounds with my cousins. It's not the best "zoo" ever but it is definitely great for parents with kids going out for the day. We would pack a lunch in the morning and go check out the animals, eat lunch on the playground, and check out the animals some more. Great place to take kids to burn off an afternoon or even a whole day. Not sure what the pricing is these days but I believe you can get a summer pass and turn it into an outing you do once a week or more. Even better when you have friends.

“No worth the money I had to pay”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

The zoo is small, which was expected. The grounds were muddy, should have been expected since it is spring, but why is there not pavement? So many animals not on display. We visited the winnipeg zoo 10+ times last year and were hoping to be able to buy the zoo pass and have our kids enjoy the one here as well. But it is not worth it to me. Just not enough there. Also you have to pay just to get into the park. So an additional $2.
on the upside the grizzly bears were pretty cool.

“A Relaxing Place to Meet”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

The zoo is small, however, May is a wonderful time to visit when the new born baby animals are out enjoying the warm spring with their mothers and other members of their species! This is a favourite outing for families on Mothers' Day.

There is a free train-like ride for visitors to tour the zoo then continue to explore on foot or just sit on one of the several park benches and feed the birds or admire the other displays.

“Christmas light tour”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

An amazing display of lights for the Christmas season, sponsored by many different companies. It would take a Grinch not to like this displauy
