Awefull Zoo, should be closed!!
Dec 2019 • Couples
This Zoo is awefull!!! The animals have way to small space and looked very sad. Especially the Elephants seemed depressed, 1 was chained to his legs and could not move, the other one tried to escape by bumping his head to the fence. Also the bears had only a little cage without any grass, trees or nature around them. Very sad to watch and we left soon after seeing this. This Zoo should be closed !!

We bought a ticket to visit Fort de Kock and since the zoo turned out to be attached to this park, it was a ticket for the zoo as well. The condition of the zoo is terrible for the animals captured there. Immediately at the entrance, we saw a chained elephant in the heat with no where to go... Other animals look underfed. This place really has to close down! Fort de Kock was not that special, so please avoid buying a ticket supporting this zoo and skip this place completely on your trip. There are way nicer places to go in the area!

Worth a visit for the unique Indonesian fauna. Not as bad as I feared.

For a country with limited resources for infrastructure, this is an OK zoo. Most compounds are of adequate size- animals can move around freely. Compounds are mostly kept clean, but with more funds, they could easily be made more pleasant for both animals and visitors. Almost all animals appeared to be in good health.
A few criticisms: some birds and animals were in cages on their own, and appeared to be pining for company. And in the Fort de Kock side, one of the on-site warungs keeps a gibbon locked up in a small cage! The park authorities should de-licence the warung, and put the gibbon in a proper compound within the zoo itself.

Pity The Animals
Sep 2017 • Couples
This zoo is pretty interesting but the condition and welfare of the animal is pretty depressing. Anyway, this area was called "Storm Park" back in the 1990s, a favourite place amongst the locals where they can see the flower park. In 1929, the Dutch are the ones who set up the zoo. Now hundreds of animals were kept in the zoo securely in a representative place and there has been effort to save rare animals from extinction. However, the caretaker and administrator of this place need to improve to ensure the welfare of the animals are well taken care of.

Come here from FDK, passing the Limpapeh Bridge. Many families spend time here. Here you can see Baanjuang house too. You could wear traditional suits too.

Not that bad at all.
Sep 2017 • Solo
The park is clean the cages are the size I know from other zoo's there are a few animals inever saw before.There where 3 young sumatera tigers. The price for foeigners is 20.000 rupies. The ford is just a old water tower where you can clime up.
It's for sure not that bad than the most reviews I red here on tripadvisor.

Horrible
Jun 2017 • Couples
We have entered the Park to see Fort de Kock and there ist no other option than to enter the zoo as well. The compounds oft all animals are far too small, there is nothing for the animals to keep themselves busy. In my opinion it is just cruelty to the animals. And it made me cry to see the chained, maladjusted elephant as well as the bear who was sitting on the concrete. Please do not visit that place.

Sad Animals
Sep 2016 • Family
The zoo is in very poor condition and animals are sad. The positive side are it located on the peak of bukittinggi itself, the nice view from limpapeh bridge and how close is the animal enclosure with the human residence is amazing.
People say: its better to say nothing, if you can't say something nice. I'll shut up now.

Horrible depressing zoo
Jul 2016 • Couples
Don't go unless you are able to do something to have it closed. Dreadful miserable place. So many examples of Zoochosis (Animals who are out of their minds with misery.
This is one of the many Asian zoos which care little about the welfare of their animals. Beautiful park for the humans of course. You could enjoy it if you could keep your eyes away from the featureless cages - either that or if you possess no capacity for empathy.

Just depressing
Jul 2016 • Couples
10000rp is not much, but the park isnt that interesting. Fort de Kock is just a building that could provide nice views, but the trees block any sight.
It is just sad to see the animals that are in too small cages, or even on a 1 meter rope.
The only thing I liked was the bridge from fort the Kock to the rest of the city.
