The zoo is open to the public every day of the year except December 25.

The zoo is owned by the City of Toronto. Founded by Hugh A. Crothers, an industrialist who became the first Chairman of the Metro Toronto Zoological Society in 1966, the zoo opened on August 15, 1974, as the Metropolitan Toronto Zoo.
