Nestled on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River, the Edmonton Valley Zoo is a small and intimate zoo that provides authentic and engaging animal experiences.

Over the past few years, capital investment from the City of Edmonton has supported the important work of the zoo. We are working hard to create a vibrant new zoo with improved habitats, better opportunities for guests to closely interact with animals, and state-of the-art research and education facilities.

Our Vision

A special place that inspires love and learning of animals and nature.


Warm and welcoming, the zoo sparks emotional connections and inspires guests to care about the animals and the natural world.


Every visit to the zoo is rich with animal interactions. From wolves to snowy owls, to snakes and armadillos, animals with their caregivers are regularly out and about meeting and engaging with guests. It’s in these delightful moments of getting close to wildlife that learning becomes accessible and stimulating.


This natural setting is complemented by a thoughtfully cultivated nurturing environment.  It starts with the animal caregivers – true stewards, they continually demonstrate their dedication to providing a high quality of life for the animals living at the zoo – and flows out to other staff, volunteers and guests.


Nestled in the City’s spectacular river valley, the zoo provides an intimate setting to interact closely with animals, connect with nature and learn how to conserve the planet for future generations.


Not all the animals can roam the grounds of the zoo. That’s why cool new changes are underway to better showcase animals in natural habitats.
