Where are we going today?
It's all about the animals at Brantford Twin Valley Zoo - animals and FUN!
This Ontario zoo is where kids (and parents!) can learn all about the creatures of the world. You don't have to even set foot near a plane to see the great lions of Africa, or travel to Down Under with the kangaroos!
Kids can see animals in naturalistic habitats, where they can observe their characteristics, and see what makes them unique!
Have you ever been face to face with a zebra, or seen a cheeky monkey nurture it's young? You can here! There are adorable bobcats, sly cougars, and even the might bear can be found.
There might even be some creatures you have never heard of before! We have some amazing animals on this planet, and no matter if they are weird, they certainly will be wonderful!
Don't miss those educational presentations too, because here kids can see animals and their young close up!
It's not just the animals at Brantford Twin Valley Zoo that kids will love either! If they are feeling active they can explore the nature trail, which is less than 1km so perfect for all kids. It will take you through some pretty woodland, so you really can have a day out in nature!
The animals are waiting to say hello, so why not visit to spend your day with them - they would love to meet you!

Nice for walking around with young ones, low key and relaxed...until you start paying attention to where you are and what you are looking at and give your head a shake.

Did you know Brantford has a bona fide zoo? It's a fantastic place to visit on a summer afternoon without dealing with the drive to Toronto.

Decent place. Small, not too much walking especially because I push a double stroller and have one three year old on foot and an 8 year old with autism running all over the place!
Animals were looking exhausted though, just laying around playing dead or something and it wasn't even hot. Kids loved the pygmy goats, they are delightful! Would go again maybe next year. I got a wag jag deal so it was cool.

A solid morning or afternoon of entertainment for the little ones. A great starter zoo for young kids if you don't want to push through the crowds at the Toronto Zoo.
Older kids may run out of excitement but the wee ones love it.

It's a great zoo for a family with kids. My 3 year old son loved it and our littlest one was easy to push around in a stroller. They have a lot of animals nicely spread out over a small area.

What are your kids learning by looking at them in this condition? Animals are meant to live for themselves, they aren't for our entertainment or education. These animals should be in the wild or at an animal refuge cared for by a select number of aware people. Not stared at and talked to and prodded to 'do something'. You want to learn about these amazing creatures, plan a trip to a sanctuary or preserve, watch animal planet, go on a hike or save up and take a trip somewhere where you might catch a real glimpse of them living naturally. This place is to be avoided by thoughtful parents, educators and guardians.
