Riverview Park and Zoo Doors Open Peterborough

Riverview Park and Zoo

Riverview Park and Zoo began with a 1933 donation of two alligators to Ross Dobbin, manager of the Peterborough Utilities Commission. Over 85 years later, the zoo remains a family-friendly facility that promotes wildlife and environmental conservation. Join staff to meet some of the animals and learn about the important conservation work that happens in Peterborough.
