The Christmas lights tour of the zoo was a whole different experience from what it is on a hot summer day. Great to see such an event in Moncton, they should offer the evening tour for a few weeks more.

Christmas lights were awesome plus you even get to visit some animals. Well worth the money to go see plus the money goes toward the cost for the animals. If you are around in December, go see the light show!

A very nice zoo to visit. We have been there 5-6 times. The animals are out for the most part but the larger cats may be hiding a bit. Really enjoyed the primates! Kids had a ball. They got ice cream half way through. For young kids you really need a stroller. It is a lot of walking. The extinct... More

With the quality of animals they have now they rate fairly high amongst all zoos in Canada. Great place for the young to learn about these animals and the older generation to see what is new. This Moncton zoo was once small but is expanding by leaps and bounds over the past 20 years. Almost every year there is something... More

If you are in the Moncton area and have small children it's a fun place to go most of the Animals their you can see them up close and have a real experience of what they look like . Yes it's a small zoo but very local and a fun outing.
