Friends of High Park Zoo (FHPZ) was formed in 2012 to raise the necessary funds to ensure that the Zoo remained open in the wake of City budget cuts for the 2012 and 2013 operating years. With the City restoring operating funding in 2014, FHPZ now looks to raise sustainable funding from individuals, corporations and local businesses to enhance and sustain the Zoo.

FHPZ is still raising funds towards Phase 2 of our multi-phased Master Plan. This phase will include the removal of the asphalt roadway and concrete curbs, the installation of bioswales, rain gardens, raised beds, the planting of more trees and the expansion of the Bison enclosure.

FHPZ is a registered charity created expressly to generate support for High Park Zoo. FHPZ accepts donations directly; more information is available here.

Please check our calendar frequently for a list of special events at the Zoo.
