Nice escapade

During off peak times the park is a nice quiet escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Enjoyed watching the giraffes eat and the sea lions were cute.

the zoo is so much more fun than just the baboon environment but i could have stayed all day watching them. hysterical! the paths around the parc wind through different environments the views through the glass walls are great for watching, above ground or below water. there is an enclosure for the giraffes, an open aviary with the flamingos, as...

Not to sure why this place has bad reviews as we had a really enjoyable afternoon. Although we don't have children you can tell that other kids are really enjoying themselves too. The zoo is large and we saw a range of animals - almost 3 hours walking around in total. The animals also look really healthy. The cost isn't... More

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!

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.
