If you have small children this place is perfect! Run by the Connel family, this local treasure is a hot spot for young... moms who need a break from sitting at home going stir-crazy with toddlers. Kids can feed popcorn to gentle animals. The yearly family pass is very reasonable and you can go as often as you like.read more
This place is awesome! So many different animals and a great place to take a break in the more rural part of Oshawa!... There are lemurs, kangaroos, horses and goats - but my favourite was the deer I saw!! He was so lovely, I wish I knew which kind he was!read more
The children loved carrying their buckets of popcorn and feeding the deer, goats, lamas, ponies, donkeys and many... other animals. Interactive. Educational. A chance to run and laugh. Providing a positively delightful afternoon!read more
Good place for little ones. Price is reasonable and it is fun to feed the animals with a bucket of popcorn. Also a... great alternative for birthday parties as it is very easy to plan and organize. The staff makes it hassle free and make sure you and your guests have everything needed to have a great time!read more
I can't believe how much fun I had as an adult! I highly recommend this zoo! Very hands on you can interact with the... animals and feed them too. Looking forward to when my son is old enough to enjoy it and much as I did! Will definitely be going back!!!read more
This zoo is great. You can buy a plentiful bucket of popcorn for $3 to feed the animals, and get some raisins for the... lemurs. You then buy the love of all the animals, the fun doesn't stop even when you run out because you can watch and pet goats walking over the goat overpass, hold the soft hands of lemurs, or pick up baby chickens. Forget any other zoo where you can't get close to most animals, here you can pet them all!read more
A fun weekend activity where you can buy a $3 bucket of popcorn to feed the animals, along with the $15/adult entrance... fee at the door. Staff are friendly, but wish they could walk around and supervise the area, especially with the animals that are towards the back.
I could have missed it but I didn't see any hand wash stations or hand sanitizer available which I think it's important since they do offer food..read more
Wonderful experience for families with young kids, owners are very kind and offer free popcorn and raisins to feed the... animals, food and drinks available for purchase but you can also bring your own and sit at one of the picnic tables.
*If you plan on attending the zoo more than once per season, buy the unlimited family pass instead as it will save you money and gives you 10% off the purchase of food and drinks*read more
What a great place. We took the kids and they had so much fun. Will definitely visit again and recommend it to all the... other parents out there to go and visit this place. You will not only entertain your kids but also help this local business.read more
I had an amazing time here. The smallest kangaroo was the only one brave enough to come eat popcorn, and it took a lot... of patience to get him to come up , eat and be pet. The only animal that was free roaming were 2 mini sheep all other animals have to be pet through the wire fence.read more
Great little zoo for small children. A nice morning or afternoon out. Bring your own water, as there is no access to a... drinking fountain. Water bottles are available for $1.25. Lots of picnic tables. A fair amount of shade. Favourites were potbelly pigs, llamas, lemurs, goats, sheep. You can buy a bucket of popcorn at the gate to feed some of the animalsread more
Nice little petting zoo with LOTS of different animals. When you pay for the entrance, you are given a bucket of... popcorn to feed the animals. You are also given a few raisins to feed the lemurs. Warning! The lemurs are extremely cute and fuzzy and will alsi take the raisins from your hands, which is amazing. In this zoo, you can also hold small, cute chicks in your arms! There are food options available here as well and the workers here are very nice! Overall, such a great experience at the Oshawa Zoo! Will 100 percent come back again!read more
All of the animals are very friendly and the area is very child friendly. There are many seating areas and all of the... animals have a lot of room to wander around. They also have pony rides for $6. Adults are $15 and kids are $11. I recommend you buy the popcorn to feed the animals which are $3 a bucketread more
This place is fantastic if you have young kids. This is the second year in a row that we’ve bought the seasons pass.... It’s well worth it, especially if you go more than once, it pays for itself.
There are a ton of animals, the kids love going here. Big open gated areas for the kids to run around.
There is a snack bar for burgers and hotdogs. Plenty of garbage cans.
Family run and super friendly. They really care about their zoo and the animals.
No washrooms. One porta-potty.
Decent amount of parking, we’ve always found a spot, even on a busy weekend.
It can get busy during the weekends. But never feels overcrowded because of how big and open the area is.
Pony rides are available for little ones for an extra $.read more
Went here recently, me and my wife decided we would each get a season pass, but not one for our daughter since she was... still free until she turned 2 at the end of May. They would not allow this because they assumed we would lie about her age on all of our return visits to get her in for free. I thought that was weird because when they asked when her birthday was and I gave them an honest answer, they didn’t trust that we would pay for her after 2 years of age, I could have easily lied and said she turns 2 in November. By default a company should trust its customers. Also there isn’t much more than your average farm animals here, and it is hard to navigate with a stroller. Will not be returning.read more
Great spot to let the kids explore, run, meet the animals and learn. My only wish is that there was more signage about... the animals to tell people where they're from, how heavy they get, what they eat. I could look it up on my phone while I'm there, but I'd rather be focused on my kiddos. :) It would be awesome to have it be more of a learning experience.read more
I've been coming to the Oshawa zoo for years with my family. We so enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and the friendly and dedicated staff as well as the ever-evolving selection of animals from around the globe.
