I went with my sister and 3 yr old nephew, and we all had a great time. We were there in time to see the otter feeding - which could have done with a bit more interaction such as someone telling everyone more about otters, the staff member just threw the food in the otters' area and that was that!

Well maintained and great indoor play area for the kids 3-6 years old which is included in entry fee. Park is clean and well maintained and the animals are worth a visit. Good thing to do to keep entertained for a few hours with kids.

A great day out for toddlers and families. Good picnic areas and a good variety of animals. A few areas could do with a spruce up, in particular the photo boards but all in all a lovely half day.

Been quite a few years since my last visit. Lovely place, very relaxed and we enjoyed a walk around. The food was excellent at the cafe and well priced. Although bottles of pop were £1.70 each which is a rip off price! The animals all looked healthy and happy and it's a great little place to visit if you don't... More

Having lived nearby for the last 7 years, we've always said we would visit but we can't believe it took that long. What were we waiting for? This is a fantastic collection of zoo animals, includingmany fascinatng species which are not found in many other zoos, many of the animals are either endangered or critically endangered. Some of the previous... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this great little zoo. There were Smaller animals, but several I had never seen before like the red panda and the binturon. It was well kept and we'll sign posted. The enclosures were set up so that we could get very close to some of the animals. The lemurs and squirrel monkeys were just a... More

Have visited on weekends and holidays before now and found the park very busy, but took out 22 month old yesterday and virtually had the place to ourselves. It was nice to be able to see the animals at our own pace and not feel like the little one was getting under anyone's feet (recommend a weekday visit for tots... More

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
