Peterborough Riverview Park & Zoo Holding Gala Celebration for its 75th Anniversary (And They Need Your Support!)

Our fantastic zoo is holding a Gala celebration for its 75th Anniversary on the evening of Saturday, August 14th, which will include the opening of a new Butterfly Garden, a delicious selection of finger foods and refreshments, music and entertainment, and a silent auction featuring amazing artwork done by the zoo's own animals! Tickets for the Gala can be purchased at the Riverview Park & Zoo office and at the Zoo Snackbar.

The Gala will also be the kickoff for a fundraising Campaign to raise money for the construction of a Zoo Animal Healthcare Centre, which will provide a greatly needed facility for the treatment of sick or injured zoo animals. Proceeds from the Gala will help provide the necessary funds.

Our zoo is free of charge for the enjoyment of all, and contributes so much to the Peterborough and area community—and now the zoo needs the community's help and support. The Campaign Committee is hoping for a generous response from the public to help build this essential Zoo Animal Healthcare Centre.

For those who have questions about the Gala and/or wish to support the fundraising campaign, further information is available at the Park & Zoo office (705-748-9300).
