    Liked the zoo. Its small, but priced well. For our little girl (15months old) it was great that the animals are that close. Easier for her to see and pay attention to. Feeding the Giraffes was pretty interesting and fun. She loved it. (not gonna lie, i did too). Lots of different type of monkeys as well. Fun place to spend an hour or two.

    Horrible how small the cages are went there with my family and made me feel sick.NEVER going ther again...there was no one to supervise the animals at all .the lions didnt even have water nor did some of the other animals....what a joke when I mentioned this to the ticket person on the way out she said they are usually short staffed ...how is that any excuse for animals to not have water available in the summer?

    I was at Elmvale Jungle Zoo today. This place should be shut down. I visit the Toronto Zoo regularly with my kids. I am not an animal protest individual by any means but this place is completely inhumane. Lions are penned in a 20 x 40 gravel pit. Tigers an even smaller cage. The cages have been designed so the animals are close which is what everyone likes for entertaining their kids. For the sake of entertaining the family these animals are not given any room to move or run. At the entrance you are greeted by a pony ride exhibit where 3...Read More

For the sake of entertaining the family these animals are not given any room to move or run. At the entrance you are greeted by a pony ride exhibit where 3 ponies are harnessed on a carousel of not more than a 10 foot span so they walk in circles 8 hours a day to so you pay $5 a child for a ride. Also many animals that in the Toronto zoo are kept in a humidified heat controlled environment are just left in small cages with nothing more than a 5 x 5 wood shack to keep out of cold rain. No staff anywhere monitoring the open concept cages so kids are free to throw bananas at every animal which we saw happen. I am truly disappointed in myself for supporting this roadside piece of garbage and hope that this post will turn people away from visiting this horrible place
