“Had a Great Day with Grandchildren”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Years since we had been but it was a real treat. Love the hides. Great to see the flamingoes again. Watched animals getting fed. Saw the gardens looked after by volunteers. Cafe was a good place for a drink and this is a good place to visit whatever the weather.

“Excellent place but entry massively overpriced!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Lovely place to visit with the little one but turned out to be a very pricey day! Would put me off going again! Certainly has to be a considered decision! Think visitor numbers would increase if they ad an annual pass similar to that at Beamish!

“Great if you like birds and the outdoors”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

Took my 5 year old son. Unfortunately he bored of the birds quite quickly. There was a small park but not enough to keep him occupied for long. As an adult I enjoyed it and it would be fantastic on a nice summers day.

“Ideal for a kids party”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

I've had my daughters party here a few yrs ago but recently she was invited to one in the summer. Luckily the weather was nice, the kids spent time building dens & then they had a picnic. We all then walked round the different areas of the park & the kids got time on the play park. Over the years I have visited the wwf park on a number of occasion, the staff are always happy to help & will adapt to each childs birthday needs.
