Spent 3-4 hours here including a snack I the cafe in the middle of the park. The cafe is a great option with kids as the food is simpler and much cheaper than the first restaurant. Overall the experience was great, we were amazed how empty it was on a Saturday around lunch time. The zoo is new and needs... More

My wife loves zoos so everywhere we travel. Paris is one of them. On our first visit the zoo was closed for renovations. I have no Idea what it was like but the "new" zoo is quite modern in that the animals see to have a lot of space and very comfortable enclosures. There is not a huge variety of... More

OK, right off the bat you have to know that the entrance fee is 22 euros, which is steep. If that's going to eat at you while at this zoo, you probably won't enjoy yourself. But once past that ticket price, the zoo itself was very nice. The layout is great as there is really only one way to go,... More

I have always loved zoos and thought I'd check the newly refurbished Parc Zoologique de Paris located on the edge of Paris' biggest park, Bois de Vincennes, in a relatively quiet and leafy part of town. Although the zoo is relatively compact, it is easy to navigate around the various biozones (natural environments). The animals seemed well looked after, with... More

We love visiting wildlife parks/zoos and were looking forward to this visit as the zoo has been closed for so long for a refurbishment. It's very clean and spacious for visitors with excellent viewing decks to view the animals. The animals all looked healthy and content and staff were friendly and helpful. Compared to London zoo it wasn't as much... More

The Parc Zoologique de Paris (Metro Porte Dorée) has reopened after years of reordering. It is a beautiful zoo. The full adult cost is €22 and well worth it. It is laid out in zones and is easy to get round.

I would expect Paris, being the city it is, to have a much better zoo especially as the zoo has been renovated. The scenery is good and it has potentail plus a concept with the five different animal zones from five different corners of the world, but exhibits cannot be easily spotted, enclosures although big and spacious, contain too many...

In general, we like to visit ZOOs. However, this one was the most expensive and with the least interesting stuff inside. Obscure huge artifical rock raised our expectations however there was nothing, so truly weird architecture. You might spend your money much better.

Staying in Bercy / Nation

Neighborhood Profile
Bercy / Nation
Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to this calming neighborhood where real Parisians make their homes.
