I love the saskatoon berry pie, their waffles (which has it's own waffle bar of toppings), and their saskatoon berry flavoured drinks. It's a cozy little restaurant tucked away beside a beautiful view of the river.

This was a surprisingly good little zoo that we didn't even know about until we were in town. Also a really excellent playground - save at least 20 minutes for kiddos to burn off energy here!

The Forestry Farm and Zoo is a wonderful place for children and families. Well maintained, beautiful grounds, great playgrounds, the Forestry Farm has it all. At Christmas time, a beautiful light display.

This zoo has a lot of animals to view. I arrived there around 9:30am and I was able to see most everything. The animals have lots of space, but no matter where they are within their enclosure you are still able to see them. The...More

Many of the animal exhibits were empty. The grass eating animals did not look healthy, the plains bison had multiple open sores on its legs. The buckeye cafe wasn't very appetizing. The walk around for the nature was nice, but the walkways are difficult terrain...More

It was a nice warm day out, but not much wildlife to see. Not sure where the animals were? We saw the Bears and the bald eagles. You shouldn't have to pay for parking, a child buggy, and entrance into the park. That's a money...More

I would agree with 974lorin. I think the concession area is the only area with seating. There is an indoor area with Meerkats and a few other animals but I don’t think there is much in the way of seating there.
