Get close to the critters at the Edmonton Valley Zoo
Edmonton's zoo will help you get to know a variety of wild animals
The Edmonton Valley Zoo is a terrific place to bring the family for an educational and entertaining day. It is a small facility supported by the City of Edmonton and dedicated to the fostering of education and environmental stewardship.
There are programs for all ages available, including courses, day camps, group safaris and tours, to name a few. There are also talks on animal conservation and regular events that help to promote responsible human-wildlife co-existence.
More than 350 animals call this zoo home. You can see exotic amphibians, reptiles, birds and a variety of mammals ranging from diminutive rodents to powerful cats such as tigers and a snow leopard.
The zoo is open 364 days a year, and you can get a discount on a group admission if you have a party of 10 or more.
