Discovery Wildlife Park Season Open

Opening Season!

May 1st is the start of the Discovery Wildlife Park season being open. Discovery Wildlife Park is a wildlife park designed to teach conservation of wildlife. Additionally at the Wildlife Park they educate the public on the animals that live in our province. Many of the animals at the park are orphans, unwanted pets or come from zoos that have closed their doors. At the Discovery park they are passionate about helping visitors understand the animals.

You can head out for a day trip to the park and take photos with the bears or beavers. You could also take in a walk with the wolves with their Adventure Packages, make a trip of it with camping at the zoo, or check out some of their special events.

Located a short drive off Highway 2 outside of Innisfail, Alberta, this wildlife park is easily an accessible experience for Alberta families to enjoy.
