The summer roundup wouldn’t be complete if I didn’t write about one of our summer favourites, the Oshawa Zoo and Fun Farm. We had a friend tell us about how much fun they had last year at this local zoo so we decided to check it out early in the season. We had a feeling it would be a go-to for us so we bought a season pass, which pays for itself after two visits (they opened in April and are open until Thanksgiving).
This zoo is small enough where I’m not afraid to let the little lady explore on her own, obviously still within the view of my watchful eyes. We have been at various parts of the days and and it has never been crazy busy. When you arrive you have the option of purchasing a bucket of popcorn, as amazing of a snack as this sounds, it actually is to feed the animals. You can easily spend a morning at the zoo. There are a lot of animals to feed and even baby chicks to hold. There are some picnic tables and a snack bar if you get hungry while you’re there. If you’re in the Durham Region definitely add the Oshawa Zoo and Fun Farm to your list to visit.
