    I can't say enough nice things about this place.

    It was fantastic when I was a kid, and now it's a great place to bring my daughter.
    It's free, there's lots and lots of animals to see. The grounds are beautiful with scattered white pines and the river.
    There's a picnic area down by the water, there's a frisbee golf course just to the east of it.

    If you live in Peterborough and have never been here then you really must go. Really. Must.

    Not only is this zoo and park free admission, it's an awesome place to bring your children and entire family for a day of education and absolute fun and relaxation. If you don't plan a family day here your missing out.

    Considering the number of trees, the lack of shade was baffling. Parking was a challenge.
