I wasn't quite sure what to make of the park upon entering as the tubular steel and chainlink does not exactly comply with your average zoo entrance, but some of the enclosures were pretty good to be fair. Although I was not wowed by anything, the animals looked healthy & content and I saw no obvious stereotyping which was good.... More

your going to see animals not fine wine and dine, dont complain about the small fee of entry, i would say its better than london zoo simply because the habitats seem more realistic and the animals seem to enjoy themselfs more. defiantly worth a visit and a walk around the local park

We visited the park with my 3 year old boy, on a Saturday afternoon. From Nation station, there is one bus ride that goes straight to the park. On weekends, if you can, buy the tickets online. There's a fee of 1 euro per ticket but it's worth it, to avoid the long queues. There's a big bunch of giraffes.... More

Really a superb place, still very new and all the animals are getting to know their environment. It's a bit expensive in the restaurant but well worth it. Paris need a real show case, compared with Jardin du Plante and Jardin de climataion.

I must say the new Paris Zoo is an excellent day out or afternoon, the animal's are brilliant and all looked after very well in there new homes, and a great deal of space compared to many other Zoo's or Societies I have been too. The habitat of water loving animal is brilliant and you can see what happens underwater... More

We decided to take the kids to the zoo while we in Paris for a few days and despite lots of poor reviews we headed off on the Metro to one of the quiter suburbs for a lovely day out. We really enjoyed it, not too busy and plenty of time to see all the animals we wanted. The zoo... More

The zoo is 100 m from the subway station, we can pay in CB . the park is really magnificent, we can really see the animals in good conditions. On the spot, several possibilities to buy food, with even, a place reserved for pic nic. With or without children, I recommend it!

I hadn’t visited in over 12 years and decided to go to see the newly renovated zoo. The only thing that even looked familiar is the old pink entry, which is now, just an emergency exit and the big giant emblematic rock. Otherwise everything has been completely redone to benefit the animals. I was shocked by all the negative comments... More

After so many years waiting for this place to re-open its doors, what a result! It is nothing but modern and a demonstration of what can be done with money but never at any moment have i felt the love for animals. I have visited so many zoos and as an animal lover i can tell you that it is... More

Reading the reviews we didn't know what to make of this zoo, but we decided to go anyway. It's definitely a bit expensive for what you get. It's a good idea to bring food and have a picnic. Plan to stay the whole day and get your money's worth. There aren't a lot of animals to see but the giraffes,... More
