One of North America’s oldest zoos, High Park Zoo, is planning a face lift and we want you to be a part of it.
For over 120 years, the free admission High Park Zoo has been one of the jewels of Toronto. As part of the development of a new Master Plan for High Park Zoo, Friends of High Park Zoo, in collaboration with the City of Toronto, invite members of the public to share their ideas and visions for High Park Zoo.
The Final Public Meeting will focus on presenting the final Master Plan Concept. The Master Plan Concept is the result of input and consultation with the public, government stakeholders and industry experts. It represents a vision for improving the visitor experience, enhancing educational opportunities, increasing accessibility, operations and making the zoo a better place for people and its animal residents.
