Nice to walk in the park!

I love the penguins and polar bears! It was really exotic for me and I strongly recommend it! Even with the family, it was a nice day out!

Ok, so it's a very pretty park but there's no way such a small zoo should be allowed the number of large animals which they have. The enclosure sizes are tiny -- hippos and elephants are huge mammals but they have barely any space to move; the lions and leopard are in cages which my pet cat would find cramped... More

This is a lovely place. Entrance is very cheap and you go on one of the boats around the river too. Lots of animals and lots of beautiful park space. There's even a Japanese garden!

The zoo is quite large with lake and beautiful flowers. The place where they have animals are all quite clean. You can see the animals very close to you. Some parts of the zoo you can also feed and interact with the animals. This zoo is one of the best zoos I've ever visited.

Just over the road from the rail station is the zoo and was far bigger than we thought so spent longer than anticipated. They had a good selection of animals and we were passing when the polar bears were being fed and there is an observation window looking into the water and it was a delight to see a polar... More

I though it was nice to be small where it can turn into a 2-hour activity for kids. There is a small play ground, cafe, and boat ride (relaxing but expensive). What was particularly nice is the section where kids are allowed to touch young sheep and goats.
