The zoo had an interesting array of animals, including rhinos, monkeys and meerkats. The zoo has been recently renovated, so everything looked in great condition and well looked after. The animals also looked as though they were being kept in good condition, which is always a concern. The weather was good, but as it was virtually all outdoors it might... More

Fantastic FREE attraction with a range of animals. Not huge but what do you expect for free entry? Great kids area surrounding also. Not far to walk from main centre of Lille

It's a very sweet place to visit during the stay in Lille and I'd highly recommend coming here. I always get a bit taken aback with zoos because I don't like seeing the wildlife away from their natural habitat, but when you see the keepers really looking after and taking personal care of the animals it makes you think that...

We hadn't planned to visit the zoo and whilst walking around the citadel ended up going in, mainly because it was free. Not sure if it will always be free, but worth paying for if they charge, great for small children, the zoo isn't huge which makes it good for children as they won't get bored, there are birds, monkeys,...

A great place to visit, really enjoyed watching the Red Pandas. I wasn't expecting it to be free, so it was a pleasant surprise. A downpour meant it was a fairly quick visit, we would have happily spent longer wandering around if it hadn't have rained.

Closest I've ever been to Red Pandas, one of my favourite animals. It's pretty small but very well presented and excellent value for money.

We planned this in our visit as you don't get many FREE zoo's. It was closed for refurbishment but was open the day we leave to come home so headed there first thing. We would have been happy to pay for the visit, you can tell it has had a major overhaul as everything is new. Wasn't happy about being... More

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.
