Take the whole family out for a stroll through Riverview Park and Zoo. The zoo features over 48 species in a large park area packed with activities for kids and adults alike. Walking trails lead the way through the exhibits, and afterwards the kids can enjoy the splash pads while you try your hand at some frisbee golf. A miniature train ride offers a fun alternative to walking around the park, and the vibrant gardens are perfect for an outdoor picnic.

  • Visit by donation. Very nice park. Lots of clean washrooms. Picnic areas . Train ride to your Right at the end of seeing all the animals near the airplane . Walk down and back to entrance. Park and snack bar , water splash pad. Great zoo for all ages . Best suited for families with younger children. My friend and I took 2 teenagers . They had a good time as well ! Recommended ❤
  • We really enjoyed our day at Riverview - imagine a place you can take your kids and enjoy the entire day and NOT get ripped off for parking, or a $15 admission (that's right no admission or parking charge). The picnic areas are extensive you can bring your lunch and enjoy a family picnic. The mini train ride costs a whole $2 for anyone over 2 yrs. The day was a delight for our 5 yr. old and 2.5 yr. old
