Visit The Calgary Zoo

Calgary Zoo

If there is one place that is a must see when visiting the great city of Calgary – it’s the Calgary Zoo.

I’ve only been twice (both times without children) and I can’t wait to go back again. Now that my son is at the age where he is in awe over elephants, bears and tigers I know the Calgary Zoo would be an amazing experience. Not only for him, but for our whole family as well.

Visit the CalgaryZoo - Such an amazing place to bring your family

Summertime in Calgary boasts tons of fun family activities including spectacular attractions and places to see. The city hosts family fun, and educational experiences alike that will keep both parents and kids active and entertained.

It’s all “Right Here” in Calgary: memories that last a life time start in Calgary, and at the Calgary Zoo. My first visit was when I was 14, and I still remember the whole day. I loved the tigers and seeing the animals that I didn’t get to see everyday.

I visited again when I moved to Alberta back in 2006, and walking through the North American exhibit made me respect the wildlife that I grew up with so much more. Plus I got to visit my beloved tigers again, it was like walking around the world in just one day.

  1. I hear a lot about the Calgary Zoo. I would love to have the chance to visit one day soon with the kids.

  2. Although the Calgary Zoo is off my radar for the time being I can totally see what you mean Randa. Zoos are wonderful places to visit! We have the huge Toronto Zoo not too far away and try to visit once a year. It is especially fun to visit on Christmas Eve! Yup, the handlers have special treats for the animals and the crisp, cold air makes for some rosy cheeks 🙂

  3. We love visiting the zoo, it’s a great way to spend a family day together. Calgary Zoo sounds excellent.

  4. I have not been to Calgary since 2007 – I hope we would be able to get back there again sometime soon to visit family and to explore the city more as well. We have not been to the Calgary Zoo, but I bet my boys would LOVE it!

  5. I’ve never been out West in Canada, I would love to visit Calgary! This looks like a great spot!

  6. My family and I enjoy visiting Zoos when we travel. If we’re ever in Calgary we’ll have to check this one out.
