The city said in a notification: “Enjoy a family visit with the West Highlands Cattle, emus and reindeer. Follow public health guidelines while visiting to help ensure we keep each other safe while reopening our city.”
Located inside High Park, the zoo offers people an opportunity to interact with the llamas, chickens, rabbits and occasionally feed the capybaras. High Park Zoo is Canada’s oldest zoo, originally housing a deer pen and an aviary.
The zoo was established in 1893 following John and Jemima Howard’s gift of their home, Colborne Lodge, and its 165-acre grounds to the City of Toronto for use as a public park. Another land was later added to make High Park what it is today. Over 600,000 visitors come to the zoo every year.
The zoo is a popular destination for schools, camps and seniors’ groups from across the city. People who come with a registered tour have the opportunity to participate in a Meet the Keeper session and get a behind-the-scenes zoo tour.
