Nestled in Sir Wilfrid Laurier Park, in the heart of the Edmonton's vast river valley, the Edmonton Valley Zoo is home to more than 350 animals. Bring along the kids for a chance to see the endangered peregrine falcon, native prairie dogs, a zebra, fox, and bighorn sheep. Bird lovers can meet the snowy owl, bald eagle, and great-horned owl. Hoot twice if you love owls! Check out the Polar Extremes exhibit that gives visitors an up-close view of seals, sea lions, and arctic foxes.

Roving interpreters offer daily demonstrations, programs, and talks. Ask about the zoo’s strong conservation focus.
