What’s New This Year?
New themed areas and activities will bring you even more ZOOLIGHTS fun in 2023.
Experience Polar Nights in Prehistoric Park. Journey through the first seasons in the life of a polar bear cub and its mother underneath the Northern Lights.
- Winter is no match for the colours of the Dorothy Harvie Gardens. Enjoy a magical garden experience illuminated by colourful lights and flower figures, as well as two festive photo opportunities. Our seven rentable Snow Globes are also located in this area.
- It’s all about ice and snow in the ENMAX Conservatory. Roam the arctic twilight and surround yourself with arctic creatures, snow covered trees, gorgeous chandeliers, and of course, polar bears. The sparkly sleigh is the perfect place for your family photographs and the display of arctic animals in the festive trees will wow you.
