Canadian Polar Bear Habitat will be closed to the public until April 5,
in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19.
Decisions surrounding reopening will be made closer to April 5, in response to how the situation develops.
Our livestreams are still up for those wishing to watch the bears.
Watch our video series Polar Bear Break to learn about our bears and what we do.
We have a small wading pool on campus that shares a glass wall with the polar bear pool in the Arctic Enclosure. It is currently closed for the winter. It is typically open during July and August. Access to the wading pool is included in the price of admission.

Seeing The Bears
The best time to see the bears is usually in the mornings when they are at their most active. However, since we give our bears as much control over their environment as possible, we can’t always predict when our bears will choose to eat, swim, sleep, or explore. Unless we are cleaning inside, they usually have access to their bear holding building, too, and they sometimes choose to spend their time there, keeping tabs on what our animal care staff is up to. You may have to be patient to get the best views. But they’re worth it.
