The zoo is undergoing a comprehensive restructuring over the next few years with the goal of recreating the natural habitats of the zoo animals.
The Edmonton Valley Zoo also participates in the Species Survival Plan, working to promote survival of threatened or endangered species. The restructuring will allow the zoo to be transformed from its original "Storyland Valley Zoo" theme to a place which emphasizes the four focus values and emphasizing creative learning experiences.
A new zoo veterinary hospital has already opened. Slated for opening in 2012 is the Arctic Shores which will present a twinned indoor-outdoor habitat which reflects a real arctic shoreline. The following year will see the opening of a new educational centre, a new zoo entrance, and the Wander Trail to demonstrate and interpret the North Saskatchewan River Valley where the zoo is located.
Future changes will be a total renovation and restructuring of all indoor areas of the zoo.
