Rekindle a sense of childhood wonder with a trip to the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo. Meet an impossibly cute mob of meerkats, the cheeky Goeldi's monkeys, majestic grizzly bears and many other species at Saskatchewan’s only CAZA accredited zoo. Little humans love to play at the Orano Fun Zone playground — it’s not just monkeys who like to swing and climb!
Hours of Operation (May 1 - Labour Day)

ZOOGALA - June 10, 2022
The Zoo will close at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, June 10 for the Saskatoon Zoo Foundation's annual fundraising event ZOOGALA.
The fun doesn’t stop just because the temperature drops! Admission to the Zoo is by donation from November 1 to March 31 each year. While the grizzly bears enjoy some restful sleep during the winter months, many of our other animals thrive in the cooler weather including our arctic fox and snow leopard.

Temporary Relocation of Birds at the Zoo
The Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo is taking steps to protect all our birds against Avian Influenza. In consultation with our veterinarians, the Zoo has decided to relocate all bird species at the Zoo to a secure facility. This means visitors to the zoo will not be able to see some of their favourite birds including:
Great Horned Owl
Highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) is transmitted by migratory birds and has recently been confirmed in wild birds in Canada. The Zoo will continue to monitor the situation and consult with our veterinary team regarding the health and safety of our birds. The Zoo is equipped with appropriate facilities to house the birds until it is safe for them to return to their exhibits.
The Lions Event Pavilion, located beside the Nutrien Ark exhibit in the Zoo, is a 9,600 square foot sheltered rental facility with the ability to host large corporate or family functions of up to 700 people. Open for rentals May through September during Zoo hours. The pavilion will also serve as the permanent home of the Saskatoon Zoo Foundation’s annual Zoogala fundraising event.
