a pretty park, but not enough animals

I much prefer the zoos in Berlin or Vienna: the parks are bigger, with more animals who have more space to live. This park is in a good location, but a little disappointing.

Having read other reviews, I was not sure what to expect but thoroughly enjoyed my visit. 22 euros is not cheap, but we spent 3 hours there walking around at a leisurely pace and enjoying the animals. I take the point about a lack of information in English but should we expect this everywhere we go? The signage was written... More

I probably was expecting too much of this completely renovated zoo. The zoo is large but very few animals, their living spaces are huge, which is great for the welfare of the species kept there, yet, because of the size of the spaces, you don't see the animals, half are hidden somewhere. The walk is pleasant, but it would be... More

A very pleasant walk. Some people are disappointed because they don't get to see all the animals, but it feels much more respectful to provide the animals with some places to hide if they want to. And still, it's mostly the felines that hides, all in all you still see a lot of animals. A great way to spend an... More

There is no more pleasant a way to spend a few hours than visiting this zoo, You can even spend half a day here; even a day. The zoo, once known as the Parc Zoologique de Vincennes - Vincennes Zoological Zoo - is *new* in that the previous zoo on the same site in the district of Vincennes on the... More

Nice, compact but very well organized zoo. Far from the center, expensive but very nice zoo that is worth visiting in Paris. Especially visit with the small kids - they will like and enjoy it!

I have to wonder if some of the other reviewers went to the same "new: zoo. I took the 56 bus from the Bastille area and it left me right at the zoo's main gate. 22 euros entrance - less than 2 burgers or 3 or 4 cokes. I loved the place and the layout.17 giraffes - how many do... More

I recommend the car elsewhere because there are few places in the area. What a surprise to have a zoo on the outskirts of Paris! The course is nice and different angles to see the animals are very pleasant. Some animals hide because there are many more quiet places for them but obviously as in all new "zoo" and we... More

Park is very small. Over half of the animals we could not see. No English information, so we could not read to the children about the animals.
