Summer vacation is coming and I have to say that the Elmvale Jungle Zoo is a great place to take the kids.
Elmvale Jungle Zoo is located at 14191 County Road 27 (Highway 27) at Elmvale, Ontario.
Approximately 20 km north of Barrie.
Discover an exciting and educational outdoor adventure at the Elmvale Jungle Zoo. Walk along shaded and winding trails. View majestic lions, tigers and jaguars. Delight in the playful antics of monkeys and lemurs. Watch the mischievious baby animals play. Admire the beauty of rare and exotic birds and other wildlife in the natural surroundings of the park's 25 acres.
The original site, established in 1967, was on two acres exhibiting mainly birds and reptiles. Over the years, the zoo has grown to include more than 300 animals from around the world, such as Australia, South America, Africa and Asia.
Bring your camera! - Don't miss our live interactive presentations of reptiles and other exotic animals. You can learn interesting facts and even touch a python!
Children will love to touch and feed animals in our petting area. Watch the rainbow trout jump as you feed them. Graceful swans and other colourful waterfowl inhabit our pond.
