A stroll out of the the city center in the direction of the Vauban's fortifications brang me to the cute small zoo where I enjoyed watching the monkeys on their island, the brightly coloured birds in their cages, and some exotic mammals. A nice break in my cultural trip.

Zoo was closed whilst we was there so just had a little stroll around the park - was a nice little stroll - would be a lot more to review on if the zoo etc had been open.

The Zoo has free entry and is a very pleasant place to visit. Plenty of animals etc and their surroundings in the enclosures looked like they were well looked after. The park itself is very nice with some very pleasant walks.

This zoo in Lille is closed at the moment unfortunately, however from various points on the outskirts, the public can see the animals, such as the zebras, rhinos, monkeys, pelicans and red pandas. As the zoo is free, the staff don't seem to mind you climbing the small hill around the zoo in order to have a look while it... More

Not too large, easy to find way around and you get to see a lot of animals and birds quite close. Near to river for a nice walk too. One of my favourite zoos and of course it is FREE entry

A very lovely little zoo which is very professionally maintained. It is free to visit and being compact is convenient for young children.

Nowadays it is not easy to do fun things for free, amusement parks, movies, etc, became pretty expensive, if you're a broke student or a family with kids, you have other priorities. But in Lille, you can visit the zoo for free! Yes! See red pandas, rhinoceros, zebras, alpaca, snakes, turtles, monkeys, and many other exotic animals for free! It... More

Despite its somewhat small size, this free zoo near the citadel in Lille, France was a good way to spend a couple hours with our kids. We visited Lille over Thanksgiving and hit the zoo at the afternoon feeding time. Al the animals were active and looked well cared for. The pathways are stroller friendly - though thankfully I don't... More
