From Grizzlies to Butterflies

Visiting any zoo is a special event, but the Calgary Zoo offers special reasons to visit the animals. Their wide range of species are grouped in specific ecologies, from the Canadian Wilds to Destination Africa and Eurasia. There's also the Penguin Plunge and the Conservatory and Gardens featuring flowers and butterflies. Don't neglect to see the dinosarus in the Prehistoric Park, featuring dozens of animatronics.

Of course, the zoo includes cafes and food kiosks, as well as gift shops. If your young ones need to burn off some extra energy, rides and play areas will give them a chance to play in the zoo. It's easy to get to the zoo via the Northeast Line of Calgary's light rail system.
