Nice little park with some interesting animals - my favourite were the bison. Set in a really lovely woodland but take wellies if you're going in autumn/winter as the paths are very muddy in places and have large puddles. I think the park would be better in the summer as a lot of the animals were hidden away from the... More

Ok so the badgers were asleep, but the otters, bears, wild horses wild boar, Elk, deer, otters, pine martin, birds and other animals made up for it. Very peaceful and the animals all looked so well cared for and kept in good surroundings. There are fantastic play facilities for children and a café too.

Not on,y are there the animals to see they have some great interactive days to take part in and the huge adventure play ground which is brilliant. I've heard... More

I know it was November when we visited Wildwood but the paths were a disgrace, no attempt had been made make th going less slippery. The cafe was dirty, the tables were sticky and after leaning on one I thought I was going to be stuck for an eternity. The chefs white were maybe once white back in 19 whenever,... More

I can see that once upon a time a passion for animals was felt and a beautiful park was built, but this seems to have been forgotten. Many cages are empty and forlorn, that staff are nowhere to be seen allowing hordes of unruly unsupervised children run a mock and scare the animals into hiding.it seems the park attracts mostly...

So disappointing, very muddy, hardly saw any animals just empty enclosures that were either overgrown or just mud baths! Grandson lost interest very quickly and we left early because there was just nothing to see! Will not be returning!

The only animals that we actually saw were the chickens and the rabbits!! Under 3's are free, but adults pay over £10 each which is too expensive for what is on offer. The kids enjoyed jumping in the muddy puddles, but they could have done that anywhere that didn't cost so much. Perhaps we were there on an off day,... More
