Meerkat House

The newest members of the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo family have quickly settled into their new digs at the Meerkat House. The new exhibit is home to 9 meerkats and features a naturalistic habitat with desert sand dunes, termite mound replicas, nest boxes and specially made tunnel systems. 

It all began with a tree nursery. Millions of saplings and a hundred years later, the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo remains a cornerstone of ecology, inspired learning and lasting memories in the Prairies. Today, this National Historic Site boasts carefully crafted gardens, restored heritage buildings, a great new naturally-themed playground and Saskatchewan’s only CAZA-AZAC accredited zoo. Whether your visit is lively and exciting or quietly reflective, this distinctly-Saskatchewan experience is sure to be a memorable one!

Where are the Feeders?

The public feed stations are no longer available at the Saskatoon Forestry Farm park and Zoo.  Why did the Zoo remove the feed stations? There are several reasons including animal welfare, health, pest management and safety. Thank you for respecting the animal diets by not feeding any animals at the Zoo.
