Movies Filmed at Former Vancouver Zoo

Part of Stanley Park
Vancouver, BC, Canada

The Vancouver Zoo dates back to 1888 when the first superintendent of Stanley Park kept a black bear cub chained to a stump. The zoo grew over the years as more animals were donated until its closure in 1996 when citizens voted to close down the facility. The last remaining structure is the polar bear grotto which was built in 1962 to house Tuk, who was also the final resident of the zoo after it closed until his death in 1997.
