Friendly advice for a perfect day at the zoo

Here is some advice to turn your day at the zoo into an unforgettable experience! Whether you’re the “avoid the long waiting lines” type or the “planning manager” type, these tricks will allow you to concentrate on what is essential: Spending a perfect day with your family!

BEFORE YOU LEAVE

Find the Perfect Ticket

We invite to go to our rates section on the website to find your ideal pass. We have different types of passes according to the number of days you’ll want to visit and the number of people in your group. Finding the combination that best suits your needs is a must! Buy your passes online and head to the ticket counter with your papers in hand.

Save the Dino Eggs

All summer the Zoo de Granby offers its visitors three new immersive activities that will transport you to the Jurassic world! One of the three consists of having you look for and collect all the dinosaur eggs spread throughout the site by using your smart phone.


With each find, a badge will be given to the players to mark their progress and a certificate will be sent to them awarding them for their excellence! Therefore, we suggest you download the application before your visit. You’ll be ready for your quest as you start your visit. Search for Dinozoo Granby to find the application.

Parking

Would you like a VIP parking space near the entrance? Reserve your spot before your visit! Although parking at the zoo is free, we also offer some special parking spaces for those who prefer this option to our alternative parking areas (at a walking distance or with a shuttle service). The parking reservation can be made online for $10.

If you haven’t made a reservation for a VIP parking space, watch for our website alerts which will indicate the parking area you should head to.

DURING YOUR VISIT

Visit the Zoo from a New Perspective

The zoo is a magnificent place to visit, straight ahead or in reverse mode! We offer you a few pathways to visit the zoo differently. Don’t forget to consult the zookeepers’ presentations and snack distribution schedule online or on the site so you’ll be sure to be at the right place at the right time!

Food Services

Ready for a lunch break? Leave your cooler at home and discover our varied food catering services! About a dozen restaurants on the site, with their “healthy eating” options as well as their “It’s a Vacation Treats” menus, will surely satisfy the entire family’s whims. What about allergies? No problem! In our main restaurants, we offer dishes that have been certified to have no allergens. We also offer many gluten and allergen-free selections at our food stands. Ask our staff for more information, they will be happy to assist you in finding an option so you’ll spend a stress-free day! This being said, lunch boxes are always welcome at the zoo. Enjoy your picnic by taking your cooler, containing no glass nor alcohol, to one of our shade-covered terraces.

Rain or Shine!

The forecast seems uncertain? The zoo is always your best activity option! With its many interior pavilions, you’ll be able to continue your visit and protect yourself from the elements. In case of rain, the rides and the Water Park remain open, except if there’s a storm watch. Don’t forget, we also sell waterproof ponchos!

With this information, we wish you a most fulfilling and most entertaining visit, filled with fun memories and delightful pictures!

Testimonials

Our family absolutely enjoyed our day! There was so much to do! Park was very clean and staff was very friendly and helpful with any questions!!! We plan on going next year and making it a weekend trip so that we can enjoy the whole park!

Crystal Wilson

Amazing place. Perfect for the whole family. They constantly improve their environments and animals collection.

Boris Kosov

First time visiting here on our annual summer week in Québec. We went for the 2 day family pass, and had an amazing time. The 2 days allowed us to take our time around the park, and gave plenty of time as well for cooling off at the Amazoo. We'll definitely come back!

JR Bélanger

It's the 3rd year in a row that my family and I visit this Zoo. Even though it was during the busiest day they had this year, we were able to visit everything and fully enjoy the experience. Don't forget to bring your bathing suit cause they have an amazing wave pool!

Éric Trudel

What a great time. Would definitely go again. The zoo care takers are amazing at what they do and so friendly. I would recommend if you have never gone it's a bucket list. Oh and don't forget to go and pet the sting rays.

Jamie Krichtoff

Amazing place to take the family! Lots of animals to see, amazing water park and fun rides. Great packages available with hotels close by for out of town visitors. Highly recommend!

Paul Winch

I had an amazing time here with my family! My kids absolutely loved it. Amazing experience :)

Mario Sevo

We had an excellent time! We have not been in over 10 years and are so glad we went! The park is clean. The food was well priced for a theme park. We loved the Dinozoo! We have terrible French speaking abilities but appreciated your courteous and friendly staff, we felt welcome!

Bonnie Diane

A good place for family outing with zoo, water park and rides all at one place. All the attractions are conveniently placed very close to each other. Food court is good too and you can also bring in your lunch.

Our whole family attended yesterday. It was absolutely spectacular. We had a fantastic time! Thanks for the memories!

Samantha Hope

We love going to the zoo. (…) Most of the animals were out and the grandkids were thrilled. I'd never been to the Dinozoo before and I thought it was pretty cool especially with the movement and sounds. The design is great in that it's seperated and all goes back to the center.
