deep, sad hymns of the sea, passionate wind-songs in the pines." - L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

The best exhibit in the park is the brown bear exposition. It totally resembles the land of Alaska. The elephant forest is another popular exhibit, which is very popular among the kids. Kids also adore the farm-animal exhibit and the interactive exhibition Zoomazium, where kids can imagine themselves in the role of a wild animal.

This zoo remains to be the most popular for the last 110 years and is highly cherished by the residents and the visitors of the city.

The park’s motto is to save animals through conservation leadership and inspiring people to learn, care and act.
