great wildlife park

we had a fantastic time seeing all of the animals and the best part was the train ride around the park. Lots of different things to see and do. Will visit again

Dress warm if your going this time of the year! It's all outside so check the weather before heading out! We were looking for something to do on Saturday so decided to go and see the animals. Kinda pricey for this time of year considering the animals are hiding out away from the cold. Didn't get to see any bears.... More

How fortunate is Kamloops to have this incredible gem in their own backyard?! Recently, I visited the Wildlife Park - with a young friend - on a sunny Autumn morning and lucked out with our wildlife encounters. Not only did we spend time with the Grizzly bears, Black bears, badger and coyote, but we treasured our quality time with Clover,... More

Spent a very afternoon at the Park. They have a good variety of local wildlife that I was happy to find out were saved or rescued. I especially enjoyed the cinnamon bear who was enjoying a swim in the pool on a very hot day. The owls were very interesting too.

Stopped in toward the end of October. Temps a little cool outside so some animals were not to be seen. Got close to the grey wolf and the grizzlies were out. Loved the birds of prey seeing owls and eagles up close. It was all decorated up for Halloween and evening spooks!!

Lots of areas were closed for the season, but the Owls and Bears were awesome. Despite this fact it was peaceful, as we had the place to ourselves and were able to do as we please, spend as much or as little time at the different areas.

I had heard of this a while ago but just made it. I went during the day on a Wednesday and it wasn't crowded at all, the gift shop is really cute and I loved that all of the animals were made for BC climates. We go to zoos all over the place and I really loved how quaint this... More
