The Greater Vancouver Zoo in Aldergrove has changed ownership. A release issued Monday by the zoo did not identify the person who purchased the 120-acre property

New owner for Aldergrove zoo

Name of individual who purchased the facility was not revealed in official announcement

The Greater Vancouver Zoo has a new owner who has big plans for the 120-acre Aldergrove site.

The zoo announced the sale in a press release Monday that did not identify the buyer.

It said the new owner is originally from China but has been living in Metro Vancouver for the last 10 years.

“Many years ago he began his career as an English teacher but for several years now, he has been a successful entrepreneur with a passion for creating interesting and exciting places for people to have fun,” the statement said.

The anonymous owner has hired an expert in eco-friendly zoo design, Bernard Harrison and Friends to develop a 20-year master plan for the whole facility.

The zoo said Harrison and two other exhibit specialists from the U.S. visited the Greater Vancouver Zoo this summer.

Greater Vancouver Zoo was called the Vancouver Game Farm when it first opened in 1970.
