The pandas were awesome but there is so much walking. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes and pace yourself. Don't get me wrong, worth a visit but be prepared if you have little kids.

Covers a vast area although not as many animals and exhibits as we thought there would be. Loved seeing the pandas and the monkeys as well as giraffes and the lion was pretty cool too. The penguins were funny and very cute

The Toronto Zoo is one of the few who purport to be planned by biogeographical regions that manages to do this with purity. It is informative, has indoor and outdoor exhibits and is very well done for the most part. It occupies a large area...More

We had a great time, active panda cubs, a busy polar bear, great grizzly bears, entertaining otters...... It's covers a large area and we simply didn't have enough time (we only had half a day). If you like zoos this is one to visit.

Situated astride Lake Ontario, Scarborough is a
district heavily influenced by immigration. With a
number of low-rent shopping and dining options making
it a highly affordable part of town, and boasting one
of Toronto's largest shopping malls, the otherwise
green suburban neighborhood is a good place to go for

Yes - you can bring in your own food. I would actually recommend it because the food they offer is overpriced and not that great.
