|About these ratings|
Modeled after the San Diego Zoo, this sprawling 700-acre facility in Scarborough is a great way to spend the day, especially if you have kids. More than 500 species of animals from all over the globe reside here. During the summer, the Zoomobile can take you through the zoo's different terrains, which include Africa, the Americas, Indo-Malaysian, Australasia and, of course, Canada. Also consider tagging along on the African Savannah walking safari, on which you get to stroll through a traditional African marketplace, a bush camp, the Gorilla Rainforest and in elephant territory.
The Toronto Zoo is open from 9 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. during the summer, but the facility begins to close earlier as winter approaches. Admission ranges from around $23 CAD for adults to $13 CAD for children (prices in U.S. dollars are roughly equivalent). Entry is also included if you purchase a Toronto CityPass.
