Zoo Master Plans

Magnetic Hill Zoo Master Plan

About the Project

Magnetic Hill Zoo is a 16-hectare zoo in New Brunswick that is set in a lush forest with a strong and varied animal collection. However, the zoo had a fairly narrow window for visitation due to the lack of experiences guests would want to visit in inclement weather.

WDM’s Master Plan for Magnetic Hill Zoo is a phased approach to zoo improvements, adding many new indoor viewing experiences throughout to increase visitor stay time and wintertime animal exhibit space.
