As part of its 10 year Master Plan, Friends of High Park Zoo is redesigning and redeveloping the Zoo. Phase 2 of the Master Plan involves the renovation of the recreation trail known as Deer Pen Road, which runs through the High Park Zoo. This work entails resurfacing, the installation of a much-needed storm drainage system using environmentally-sensitive plant and stone bioswales to improve drainage of water on the site, naturalization of the trail with planting of new trees and native plant species, as well as accessibility and safety improvements to the trail.

Friends of High Park Zoo
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 looks to raise sustainable funding from individuals, corporations and local businesses to enhance and sustain the Zoo.
