    The new renovations at the Edmonton Zoo look great. Our family enjoyed walking around at night when the lights were all on for the Lights Festival. It was good to see the animals active. We did not bring our skates but will do so next time! The Red Pandas and Lucy were our favourites. the little kids with us sure liked the seals!

    I would never recommend going to this Zoo. Lucy the Elephant is a prisoner here kept alone with inadequate living conditions. The zoo had refused to have her assessed by an elephant expert provided by Bob Barker to go to a sanctuary. This zoo only cares about money and not the well being of its animals. Unfortunately due to our climate in Edmonton Lucy lives 75%of her time in a prison cell. I was completely disgusted with this zoo would not recommend to anyone. At least Toronto Zoo had the decency to put the well being of its elephants before greed. If you love animals please do not support this Zoo!!! Lucy’s life depends on it.

    I visited the Edmonton Valley Zoo for the first time this past weekend. Judging by the entrance, architecture, landscaping, signage, I thought it was going to be a world-class zoo experience. Unfortunately, the living conditions of some (most) of the animals is, from my point of view, totally unacceptable: cages are too small for animals like monkeys, hawks, eagles… even the brand-new red panda they say they’re so proud of. Honestly… in some cases I had to look the other way. The City of Edmonton can do a lot better. Invest in animal well being, not just cosmetics!

    Went to the zoo last weekend. I couldn’t believe the state of the place. Three dirty empty water tanks with loads of construction workers and work going on. I have been to zoo’s all over the world and this is by far the worst. The tiger cage was horrendous, to small and over grown with weeds. All the snack shops through out the park were shut. They also charge a ridiculous amount to go on a paddle boat, which is more like a puddle than a pond. Overall all experience was a huge disappointment and not anywhere near worth the price to get in.

    We took our 20 month old there (she was just over 12 months at the time) and we were very appalled by the state and condition of the venue.This zoo is more like a jail for the the animals rather than “sanctuary” like a zoo should be.My daughter showed no interest in the animals, as they were mostly all sleeping or lazing around. The only animals that were active were the seals-which our daughter did like.The saddest part, was we walked past an animal’s cage, and we all said the animal looked dead. Later that day, a story was broadcasted on the news that the animal had died the day before we went to the zoo. The animals appear to be well feed; however, the living arrangements are small and in my opinion unfit for these animals.There is also the matter of Lucy the elephant.
