Master Plan

We're planning a face lift!

In order to plan improvements to the Zoo and ensure it will continue to be an important part of our community for years to come, Friends of High Park Zoo, in collaboration with the City of Toronto and industry professionals, developed a High Park Zoo Master Plan. This plan will guide our projects and capital improvements for years to come.

As part of this process, we asked members of the public to share their ideas and visions for High Park Zoo. We gathered input on immediate and long-term goals for the Zoo, specifically on improving the visitor experience, enhancing educational opportunities, increasing accessibility and any suggestions for specific projects that would make the Zoo a better place for people and our animal residents.

All information was collected in accordance with the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. All comments will become part of the public record, except for personal information.

Funding for the Master Plan is generously provided by the Province of Ontario. The views expressed on this website are those of Friends of High Park Zoo and do not necessarily reflect those of the Province.
