Head out on an animal adventure at Papanack Park Zoo, about an hour east of Ottawa. The zoo is home to a wide assortment of creatures, from the exotic (zebras, cougars, kangaroos,) to the familiar (black bears, raccoons, chickens). On Saturdays until Thanksgiving, take the rare opportunity to see animals on their evening prowl with the Night Safari. During these moonlit walks you can catch the lions feasting, hear the wolves howling, and enjoy a guided tour as you watch some nocturnal creatures stretch their legs. Don’t forget your flashlight!
