Toronto Zoo news

What's new at the Zoo...

Weekly feature
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 and have a "splashing" good time!

Friday, August 3 to Monday, August 6
Pacific giant octopus, American eel, Madagascar fishes, Lake Victoria fishes, fishes of the Great Barrier Reef - we share water with these aquatic creatures and so many more! Visit all these fishes and many others on exhibit at Toronto Zoo as we celebrate all things wet and wild.
