May 01, 2017 Riverview Park & Zoo Train To Open May Long Weekend May 01, 2017/ PTBOCANADA Barring any issues with their spring inspection, the Riverview Park & Zoo's train will open on the May long weekend. "We haven't missed it yet so I hope there's no issues," the zoo's Jim Moloney tells PTBOCanada. The train has been a big hit at the zoo since first opening in the early '70s. Here are some pictures of the construction and train from those early days... The splash pad is more weather dependant but should be open by mid-June, Moloney tells PTBOCanada.
