Stunned at the price when we arrived. We decided to pay it thinking at that price it must be really good. We were so wrong. The layout is terrible. There are only a few animals to see. Most of the areas that housed animals had no residents. We are trying to find something good to say about this. The only... More

We used to go to this zoo about 10 to 15 years ago before it closed. Now looks very smart but has shortage of animals. The giraffes and rhinos had plenty of space but other animals did not. Simply not enough to see for 22 euros (however, if going spend extra euro for on line tickets to avoid queues). Large... More

This park is coming from far back... it used to be terrible and a dirty place before t closed. Now that they renewed the infrastructures, invested in better housing and treatment for the animals, this is a great place to go to with kids. Animals: the animals look beautiful and happy... - The tropical birds are gorgeous and healthy, showing... More

Very costly entry price for a small zoo in which animals do not seem to have enough space to enjoy a "decent" normal animal life. It might be worth it for people who have never ever seen animals in a zoo before and cannot afford to go somewhere else. That's all. One would have expected a better zoo knowing that... More

I don't particularly like the idea of zoos in general unless they allow for education about endagered species and the protection and reproduction of these species, which apparently is the case of the Zoo de Vincennes. I'm not going to argue that the price is ridiculous because zoos require upkeep and I don't believe it's possible to offer the animals... More

Modern and clean zoo. I guess maintenance is not cheap especially after the renovation. However, entrance fee is high. 22 euros for a adult is too much. We visited zoo this month on hot sunny day with 2 toddlers. We struggled to find place in shade so as other visitors. Few picnic areas not shaded and quite small for a... More

Visited on a sunny day of July. Was expected to see modern zoo. Was mostly unsurprising except for the high price and the limited choice of animals to observe. Not even a decent picnic area. 22 euro per adult for a tour completed in 1 hour or so. By comparison lyon's Tete d'or ménagerie is free And as enjoyable. A... More

I visited this zoo as a child 35 years ago and when I heard about the end of the renovation after 3 years, I decided to bring my daughter (and wife) to experience this brand new ZOO and I was not disappointed. Everything was just perfect, the animals close enough to be seen by the kids, educational spot allowing to... More

This is not a great zoo and I doubt it would show up on a top ranking list. But it makes a nice stop (maybe two hours max) for zoo enthusiasts and for those traveling with children. For the past six years, the zoo has been closed and undergoing renovations. It reopened this past April and I made it a... More
