The Edmonton Valley Zoo is open 364 days of the year. An annual pass is a great investment, allowing your family to see the animals any day of the year — from getting close to the babies in springtime through seeing them grow up through the fall and winter seasons.

Please note: The nocturnal wing is currently closed to the public as we complete some renovations inside Saito Centre. We apologize for any inconvenience.
