News at the Park and Zoo

Keep up-to-date with all the new and exciting events at the Riverview Park & Zoo! We are constantly changing and improving what we offer to the public.  Any notices about changes will be posted here.


Please Note: Fall Update

Operating Schedule: The Park and Zoo is now operating on our fall/winter hours and program schedule. Our Conservation Exhibit, splash pad and miniature train ride are now closed for the year and the "Meet the Keeper" program is now over for this year. Guest Services and the Snack Bar are now closed until Victoria Day weekend in the spring of 2019. Our daily (1:30 pm) otter feedings carry on throughout the fall and winter. 

Construction Projects: Over the next several weeks access to areas of the zoo may be limited as we work on a number of construction projects. We're working on improvements to several animal exhibits including the cat exhibit, the yak exhibit and the capybara exhibit. We will also be renovating the south section of the playground as well, and we will be wrapping up a three-year project to rehabilitate the miniature train rail bed and tracks.
