I can never understand why people grumble about paying about a fiver to get into an attraction. You can spend as much or as little time here as you want, play areas, enclosures, a soft play area and all run by the city council. Our two under threes got in for free. We went early in the morning and everything... More

Man sized weeds everywhere... We didn't see the animals about weeds. We went with a 1 year old little girl.

A great day out for children and adults too. You can see some animals that are not even kept at zoo's, which is an added bonus.

This attraction is council run and as such doesn't seem to care much about visitor visibility of the animals. Visiting in June all the enclosures were knee high in weeds thus making the spotting of animals almost impossible especially for children. Even bushes and shrubs in enclosures are not trimmed so again virtually impossible to see any animals. Its a... More

A seriously good day out, especially if you like monkeys. There is a wide range of animals, but with a focus on different monkeys. Brilliant idea for a family day out, with good food if you're hungry. I really like monkeys so I may be a bit biased, but the whole experience was really great. Also, they have lynxes which... More

I visited the wildlife park yesterday afternoon with 2 friends. We arrived and paid the very reasonable student price of £4.50 (the adult price is only £1 extra!). The girl on reception was very welcoming and also very helpful when we returned to reception during the visit to ask a question about the Nocturnal house. She was very enthusiastic and... More

We hardly saw any animals and the little play area outside was closed. Kids did not enjoy it at all, they couldn't wait to leave. Cannon hill park is right next to it, kids would've had more fun there. We didnt even stay half an hour before we left. It's not too expensive but not even worth the amount it... More

We traveled here as a family with 2 young children and everyone enjoyed themselves. It is a fun small zoo with your usual zoo animals as well as a reptile house. There is a small park for the children to play on as well as a picnic area. We would definitely recommend this place and would definitely go again.

Probably okay for young school kids as there are a few animals to see but the place is very small and not well-maintained. Animals are in tight areas and a lot of the enclosures have overgrown plants and trees. So, visibility of some animals is quite bad. It is really small. Was surprised at how small actually because from the... More

The wildlife conservation park is brilliant. We've been a few times and was glad when it reopened under a different name. It's much bigger than it looks from the outside, there are plenty of enclosures and a variety of really interesting animals. The red panda, meerkats, lynxes and deer being our favourites. We had ice cream at the cafe and... More
