What's new at the Toronto Zoo, throughout Labour Day Weekend

News Release
What better place to visit this long weekend than the Toronto Zoo! Grab your troop and head to the wildest summer adventure in Toronto!
 Round up the kids and chill out in Splash Island, the coolest spot in the Zoo! It's two magical acres of hands-on, non-stop family fun amidst waterslides, bigger than life water-spouting animals, a waterfall, lots of misters, and way-cool tipping buckets. But keep in mind - while the kids are screaming with delight, they're also learning all about which plants and animals live in different bodies of water!
Come out to the Zoo this LONG weekend and have a "splashing" good time!

WEEKEND EVENTS:
Saturday, September 1
Show your Canon Camera at the Canon tent near the Zoo's Front Entrance for one free child admission and learn how to take the best photo at the Zoo with help of Canon photo experts!
