Travel on a budget and contribute money to global conservation efforts with every single visit. A trip to Calgary Zoo does so much more than entertain; with access to 119 species and the nearly 1,000 animals, there’s never a dull moment. It’s the perfect destination for all age groups.
Come explore the unique immersive habitats with Panda Passage and Land of Lemurs. We’re always working on new ways for visitors to experience nature and understand wildlife behaviour, breeding, nutrition and nature’s complex ecosystems. Learn more on how much we truly rely on nature and the best ways to support it.
Don’t forget to refuel while at the Calgary Zoo. Head over to Kitamba Café or one of the many food kiosks throughout the park for a meal or a quick snack. If you feel like a sit-down meal visit the seasonal restaurant, Grazers, which features locally-sourced ingredients and is fully licensed.
A variety of guided tours are offered through the most popular destinations and are complete with a delicious meal prepared by our culinary team.
The Calgary Zoo is conveniently located just two C-train stops from downtown and offers abundant public parking, making every visit easy and convenient. Inside the zoo, you’ll find the stroller, wagon and wheelchair rentals, a great variety of food services and open picnic areas.
Year-round operating hours are 9:00 am to 6:00 pm daily (gates close at 5:00 pm daily). Open every day except December 25th.
