We visited the park on Wednesday 27th May and were pleasantly surprised. I am not sure why some of the reviewers are complaining, the price is very reasonable, the animals are interesting and the only ones we did not see were the otters. The enclosures are fine the majority of them have been improved, plenty of laminated glass panels to... More

Like its says in my title if you go with a family they will enjoy it. Definetly a day out for kids that they will enjoy. The small indoor playground is no longer available but there is a small stand at the end facepainting for kids which is a nice touch. Also cannon hill park is next to it which... More

Awful for the price that is being charged now. Definately not worth it. Couldn't hardly see any of the animals. The paint work in the park is deeply worn out, looking back at the children's pictures, it seems as if we have been to a years old neglected area. Certainly will not be going there again. Picnic benches are extremely... More

I am normally iffy on zoos and the like but these do have a number of endangered and critically endangered species which should be beneficial to their continuation in the future, so hopefully we contributed to a good cause to be honest its a bit run down but the animals didn't look stressed the new cafe was reasonably priced and...

We visited the conservation park today (bank holiday Monday) and was very disappointed! Firstly the entrance fee for adults is now a whopping £5.50! The park itself needs a LOT of TLC, the enclosures are tired, the animals (when we could actually see them!) look scruffy and unkempt! The gardens, enclosures and walkways are overgrown with weeds and the staff... More

A great place to visit with very reasonably priced entry. Friendly staff and an interesting wide variety of animals to view. It's not a big zoo and an afternoon with small children or grand kids is plenty time to see everything without exhausting yourselves. Red panda, Otters and of course the currently popular Meerkats are easily viewable. Everything is well... More

Have been over the years several times. This time with extended family group including 1 year old grandson and 11 year old nephew. Some interest for everyone, excellent vfm and highly recommended for the whole family. Needless to say the animals are beautiful and they are also well cared for 😃

I was so pleasantly surprised by my visit to this park. It was relatively cheap so I did not think it would be very good, however there was a huge range of animals! All really exotic too! Great for kids! Really easy to walk around too!!! However the cafe and restaurant were very naff. We ate before we went which... More
