I had no idea there was a two-acre splash pad at the Toronto Zoo. It’s incredible. When we went last year, it happened to be the hottest day of the year and we didn’t last very long. Our visit this year was on a perfect summer day so after exploring the African Savanna (our favourite section) we hit the Discovery Zone where Splash Island is located. “Island” is definitely a better word to describe this waterplay area- it’s huge with waterslides, waterfalls and water-spouting animals. So much fun.
My little man didn’t want to leave- he just sort of collapsed with exhaustion near the waterslides. Splash Island, like all the areas in the zoo’s Discovery Zone for kids, is free with general admission.
