Originally founded in 1919 as Bowmanville Zoological Park as a small recreational resort with a swimming pool, cottages, tennis courts, and a small petting zoo. Renamed Bowmanville Zoo in 1964 and under new ownership since 1988, the zoo now hosts more than 300 animals roaming 42 acres of parkland, including birds, reptiles, mammals, and large felines. Throughout the week, guests have the opportunity to watch zoo keepers feed the animals, watch live animal presentations in the Animatheatre, or take in attractions such as Splash Bash and horse-drawn carriages.
