SASKATOON — Renovations to the Affinity Learning Centre at the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo are nearly complete and the building is set to open to the public on Friday, Nov. 26.
“We have completely redesigned the layout of the Affinity Learning Centre and added some really amazing exhibits that will be home to several new species like the colourful poison dart frogs, axolotl, and a variety of cichlids from the Lake Malawi [in] Africa, said zoo manager Jeff Mitchell.
The newly renovated facility will be home to a variety of reptiles, amphibians and fish including: poison dart frogs, hermann’s tortoise, ball python, western tiger salamander, axolotl, garter snake, blue-tongued skink, and cichlids from Lake Malawi, Africa.
The zoo would like to thank the Saskatoon Zoo Foundation, Affinity Credit Union, and Krawchuck Construction for their continued partnership and support of the Affinity Learning Centre.
The zoo would also like to remind residents that a non-medical mask is required when accessing indoor city-operated facilities and services including the Affinity Learning Centre, Meerkat House, and washroom facilities at the zoo.
Although masks are not required in outdoor spaces, the city recommends wearing a mask throughout your visit, even while enjoying the outdoor exhibits.
The Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park & Zoo is not included in the list of City of Saskatoon programs and facilities where public access requires full proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test.
The zoo is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and admission is by donation until March 31, 2022. Visit saskatoon.ca/zoo for more information or to plan your next visit.
