Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo

Cougar at the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo

Admission by Donation Starting November 1

It's a great time to visit the Zoo! See Komodo Dragons Thorn and Shruikan at the Komodo Island Exhibit or visit cougars Malcolm and Jethro at the PotashCorp Ark Exhibit.

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.
