Back by popular demand - our annual fun-filled and very popular day for people with disabilities and at a discounted rate!

The Zoo is pleased to host and provide a great deal of $5 per person (special needs assistants get in for free) and to ride the train $2 per person (excluding special needs assistants).

Due to limited availability, we are unable to accommodate everyone on Access Day on the train and will therefore be selecting interested groups through a random draw. To qualify for the train lottery, registration forms must be in by Friday May 27th. Draw will take place on Monday May 30th and groups selected will be contacted as soon as possible if their group has been drawn. Pre-register here with our Education Department or call 604.856.6825 ext 26 or via email at

*****Please note the first public train on this day will be at 2:30 pm.

This event is always extremely popular, so book now to avoid disappointment. FINAL DEADLINE to book for this event is JUNE 3RD!


HAPPY DAY FOR TURTLES!! Come discover the wonderful world of turtles and in particular our conservation efforts to help save the endangered Western Painted Turtle.

The Western Painted Turtle (Chrysemys picta bellii) is the only remaining native pond turtle left in B.C and has a wide distribution in western North America. In British Columbia, there are two populations of the Western Painted Turtle: the Intermountain - Rocky Mountain Population in the southern interior and Pacific Coast Population in the southwest.

Stop by the information booth for some great tips on turtles and don’t miss our Conservation Chat at 2 pm.

And for our other favorite turtles - we are also celebrating "World Turtle Day®" with the soon-to-be-released "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows" in theatres June 3 - we'll be handing out free movie swag and enter to win some tickets to the advance 3D screening!!!
How cool is that!


Who loves their MOM?? Does she love animals and the great outdoors? If so, why not come celebrate Mother's Day with us - the first 100 mom's get in half price and receive a special treat!!

Everyone will get a chance to meet up with the Super Mom's here at the Zoo!
