Home of the North American porcupine and Lucy the Elephant, this city zoo is tucked away in the residential neighbourhood of Laurier Heights. Guests can sign up for zoo tours or wander the grounds to see the 5,000 species of animals on display. The best time to visit is between May and August when children can ride the miniature train and merry-go-round. Visit during the winter and the crowds are small, but so is the selection of animals accessible for viewing. Admission for a family is $34.50 CAD during peak season.
