Welcome to Twin Valley Zoo
We will be opening Thursday, May 21st. Our hours will be from 10:00 until 5:00.
Twin Valley Zoo has taken extra precautions to keep our animals, family, staff and customers safe. We have reviewed and followed the Ontario guidelines. We have also done our own due diligence, researching local shops, grocery stores, and markets to meet and follow our community precautions.
At Twin Valley Zoo we understand that these are unprecedented times. We take families physical and mental health very seriously and understand the need for families to be outdoors, in nature, connecting. Each family has to make choices that are right for themselves, and we support those choices. While we do have hand sanitizer available, we encourage you to bring your own and use it when touching contact surfaces. If you wish to wear PPE, we welcome you to do so. We have created and implemented the following procedures:
- An outdoor lineup area with 10 foot spacing to allow families extra room for themselves, strollers or wagons.
- Our gift shop has been equipped with sanitizer, protective plexiglass and directional arrows. It also has a limit of 1 family in the entrance and 2 families on either side of the gift shop area.
- Signage has been placed throughout our parking lot, entrance way, gift shop and outdoor zoo areas.
- Picnic tables are sanitized and spaced with a minimum of 10 feet to allow for family picnics.
- We are currently operating under a “No Touch Policy” and have therefore closed our goat area, all feeders, educational shows and our reptile room as extra precautions.
PLEASE, DO NOT TOUCH OR FEED ANY ANIMALS.
- Twin Valley Zoo is a children’s zoo and we understand our young populations need for washrooms. We have taken extra precautions to accommodate our visitors needs. Hand washing is our #1 defence, so please, wash your hands frequently. Contact points are being sanitized every hour and full cleans are done regularly throughout the day.
- We have placed markers throughout the zoo for direction and spacing.
- We have thoroughly reviewed expectations and regulations with our dedicated staff. We have implemented extra hand washing precautions and have PPE available for them, if needed.We are asking for everyone’s cooperation, understanding and respect.
This has been a long road for us and we are very excited, but we will be operating under very strict rules and guidelines. Customers that do not abide by these guidelines WILL be asked to leave.
If you have any questions please feel free to email us at email@example.com
We would like to thank our zoo staff and family, our community, our volunteers, our local farmers, our contributors, our amazing customers and our county for loving us and supporting us. We could not have done this without you, we are here because of all of you! From all the animals and the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
