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.

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.
