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.

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

We combined this a visit to the Xmas market in mid December. After a brisk walk to the citadel which is only worth a look as you cannot get in as occupied by French forces and a soldier shouts at you if you step onto the bridge! Went to the zoo only to see a sign that it was closed... More

The fact this zoo is free means it's great for a day out with family and friends. Only problem is it closes during Winter months

Small zoo located by the Citadel. We visited in mid December and naturally several of the tropical animals were keeping warm indoors. There was also some renovation work taking place. Well worth a visit if you are nearby especially considering it's free.
