Calgary Zoo information
More than 1,000 animals from around the world, many in enclosures simulating their natural habitats, make Calgary's zoo one of the top rated in North America and almost on a par with Toronto's.
Besides the animals, the zoo has a Botanical Garden , with changing garden displays, a tropical rainforest , a good butterfly enclosure and the 6½-hectare Prehistoric Park , featuring fossil displays and life-size dinosaur replicas in natural settings. Picnic areas dot the zoo, and a cafe is on-site. During winter, when neither you nor the animals will care to linger outdoors, the admission price is reduced. To get here, take the C train east to the Zoo stop.
