High Park Zoo
The zoo inside High Park in Toronto is located on Deer Pen Road and is accessible via the Parkside Road entrance. There is plenty of parking just in front of the zoo's entrance.
The zoo is open all year long from 7 am till dusk. There are 6 or 7 enclosed areas on either side of Deer Pen road where the animals of the zoo live. You can find bison, deer, llamas, peacocks, highland cattle, etc. in the zoo.
The zoo dates back to the early 1900s when deer were kept inside High Park.
Please do not feed the animals. They are on a special diet and they may get sick from food given to them by visitors. When you take pictures, please be considerate and don't use your camera's flash because it disturbs animals (how would you like to be photographed 100 times a day?)
The High Park zoo is really great for families. No need to walk for hours from one animal to another and there are plenty of other activities in the park where you and your family can engage in.
There is no admission fee to enter the zoo area.
As of 2012 the zoo is not funded by the City of Toronto but it's still open
thanks to generous donations to raise the funds needed for operation. To donate
