What a nice park. I would say this park is especially great if you love flowers, statues/sculptures, ponds/lakes and birds, Such a pleasant park to have picnic at. You can see many different species of birds in well designed big averies, meerkats, racoons, guinea pigs, goats, monkies etc. There is also a train for the family to go on which... More

Went with 4 year old grand daughter, spent a few hours on a dry but chilly day. Not much indoor play stuff quite a few animals to see but no handling while we were there. Nothing special organised, Paddling pool would be good in summer. Train ride was good and helped with finding way around subsequently. Good outdoor play areas... More

Great for kids, this place is hidden away just off the main road by the river Thames and we stumbled upon it by chance. My niece and nephew had a really fun afternoon and enjoyed seeing all the animals especially the lambs. The coffee shop is a little pricey but serves fresh and tasty snacks.

I went to Beale Park with my son, his family and my step daughter. It was a well kept and maintained Zoo with plenty of childrens activities. The small zoo is ideal to keep children occupied and not too bored. The amimal athletics boards that are in several places kept my step daughter busy and had all of us laughing... More

Nice local park with lots of animals. Especially collection of birds and small monkeys are nice. Entry fee is too high for what it is.

Not my first visit to Beale park but the first in a couple of years. Myself and my 5yr old boy visited on Saturday 25th April. Luckily the rain held off!! The park is really well maintained & ongoing refurbishments of the animal pens/enclosures in a couple of places didn't detract from tidiness and cleanliness of the whole park. Friendly... More
