Splash Island at the Toronto Zoo

I had no idea there was a two-acre splash pad at the Toronto Zoo. It's incredible. When we went last year, it happened to be the hottest day of the year and we didn't last very long. Our visit this year was on a perfect summer day so after exploring the African Savanna (our favourite section) we hit the Discovery Zone where Splash Island is located. "Island" is definitely a better word to describe this waterplay area- it's huge with waterslides, waterfalls and water-spouting animals. So. Much. FUN.

My little man didn't want to leave- he just sort of collapsed with exhaustion near the waterslides. Splash Island, like all the areas in the zoo's Discovery Zone for kids, is free with general admission. Rosie :)

The Zoo should advertise better. This is fabulous!

I was shocked at how huge it was and the attention to detail. Little man's eyes nearly burst out of their sockets when he saw all that water spraying. We were soaked!

Wow, need to tell my sister who lives in West Hill, as she has been sending the kids to Wonder land! Personally since my kids are over the late teens, I haven't been to the zoo since about 2006.
Rosie, any way to get on a update feed to my email from you? I only pop in now and then, but would like an update if possible? Thanks Rick

Hi Rick! I am consulting with my technical advisor (that would be Mike) and I should have this feature soon :) so glad you dropped in!
