Decent number of animals and lots of information available. Not all animals where there in November. Good for about 2 hours of fun.

My daughters (1.5 & 3) had a fantastic time here! The animals seem very well taken care of and have lots of space. The park is clean and its easily walk-able; even with small children! Would definitely recommend a visit.

We went at 5pm when it was nice and quiet. Great value at CAN$4.75 per person. Animal welfare clearly highly on the agenda as the cages / enclosures were large. We loved seeing the moose, black bears and beavers. Very impressed.

Stopped in here for a last minute time killer and was well worth it. Lots of variety, great price and just long enough of a walk

We only had a week in Nova Scotia and didn't know if there was anywhere nearby where we could see moose, beaver, wolf or bear until a local in Halifax told us that she liked taking her children to Shubenacadie Wildlife Park. We checked the...More

I would allow at least 2 hours to walk around the park, but almost three would be better We were there around 3 pm in the afternoon, and most of the animals were sleeping or hiding. It was disappointing. Contact the park... More

I am wondering how to get there by public transportation. A google map search told me that I would have to walk for 11 hours from Waverley road, Dartmouth....lol. I can bus it as far as possible from the Dartmouth bridge terminal...just wondering what are the options. I dont have a car and nobody to drive me.

Hi Dana, Unfortunately there is no public transportation that goes near the Wildlife Park. The best way would be to either rent a car or take a cab and get them to come back and pick you up. If you are leaving downtown... More
