Take the whole family out for a stroll through Riverview Park and Zoo. The zoo features over 48 species in a large park area packed with activities for kids and adults alike. Walking trails lead the way through the exhibits, and afterwards the kids can enjoy the splash pads while you try your hand at some frisbee golf. A miniature train ride offers a fun alternative to walking around the park, and the vibrant gardens are perfect for an outdoor picnic.

This is a " zoo " in the middle of Peterborough Ontario and it's free. Many animals to see and learn about in an very nice park like setting. There's also a great little train the family can ride on and there's a fee of $2.00 per person. It's on the river , with swings , slides , and climbing devices. There's also a long approximately 80' slide that's fun and enjoyable. Bring a blanket for the slide and you'll go faster and have a better time. It takes about 1.5- 2 hours too see the park at a quick pace , more if you take your time.
Beautiful park /zoo. A great place to take the kids for the day on a budget. Entrance is free, huge playground, well kept and clean, and a fun train that runs through the park. A surprising amount of animals for a free zoo. We will be going back!
