The Toronto Zoo has been one of the top attractions in Ontario for many years. The Toronto Zoo is set in the beautiful Rouge Valley and features over 5,000 animals representing over 460 different species. Each year, over 1.2 million visitors spend a day walking over 10km (6mi) of trails in one of the largest zoos in the world (710 acres).
The Toronto Zoo is divided into six areas: Indo-Malaya, Africa, Australasia, the Americas, Eurasia and the Canadian Domain. The animals are displayed indoors in tropical pavilions and outdoors in naturalistic environments. Highlights of the zoo are the award winning African Savanna, Great Barrier Reef, and the Gorilla Rainforest.
The Main Entrance is located on Meadowvale Road, Scarborough, north of Highway 401 (Exit #389 eastbound and westbound). The Zoo is accessible by car and public transit.
