We recently visited the park and thoroughly enjoyed every second. Loads of different animals to look at and learn about, fantastic walk around including looking at the Boat Museum and toy museum. Even had a train ride round the park. Highly recommend visiting!

Having been here as a child, I thought it might be nice to return. It's nice that it's got a nice open feel about the park with a good variety of animals, my highlight was the meerkat exhibit, but overall it really is only a great place if you have kids. This is a great learning facility and families are... More

Took my 3 year old grand-daughter here for the day with my 13 year old son and I would rate this as average. The paddling pools were good for warmer weather and the train ride was quite fun. The grounds are very nice, especially a walk over the bridge around the lovely waterlily pond. Plenty of birds but few animals.... More

I went to Beal Park to photograph the animals for a project, I chose a mid week after half term and I virtually had the place to my self. I was impressed by the amount and variety of wild life, spectacular birds, Deer roaming in the fields, meerkats and many others. Even a small toy museum and place for picnics.... More

My kids, 2 and 4 loved it here. We took a picnic and found a lovely quiet and private place to eat. The whole site was well maintained and lots of interesting creatures, cute animals and bird life. They make a big deal about how clean the toilets are - and they are very clean! We paid about £38 for... More

We visited in August 2014 with our 4 year old grandson. He loved it! There's a small train track round the park, a Little Tikes section with cars etc to play with, large picnic area (bring your own!) and large paddling pool area. Lots of things to look at, small animals and toy shop displaying toys throughout fifties to eighties.... More
