Sad

Is sad to see some big animals in such small cages. Animals seem to be stressed turning and walking on the same pats

Really lovely zoo right in the middle of the city. Don’t miss it! It’s free and there is a wide variety of animals.

Paradize for kids and grownups

Very nice park, free entry (which you will not find often in CH). the park as an average size, not too big but large enough to have a rich variety of animals. clean and well presented, it is a nice place to spend some time with family and friends.
go to the vivarium near the goat park.

The Goat park is a petting zoo where you can basically pet the goats ;D lot of fun!

Do Not miss the Vivarium !
Aug 2015 • Family
For it's size and free entrance fee, the Zoo is excellent. It is clean and well maintained. Trees are planted nicely, and there are benches strategically located in front of the cages so you can still see the animals while having a rest
My advice is not to miss the vivarium, as i found it stands out among others. It has good collection of snakes, lizards, and spiders (there are some fishes and turtles too). It is nicely designed, and again, well maintained.
Near the end of this small zoo, there's a playground, with small water playground as well. It's good for your kids when they're starting to get bored.
Make sure you visit this zoo when you're in La Chaux-de-Fonds

What do you expect ?
That's an awesome place to spend time and it's FREE ! What is free today without been located in a commercial center and trying to sell you stuff indirectly ??
This place is well maintained and is a perfect spot to teach your kinds the local wild animals or to play with little goats

A very nice place to take especially kids, a great variety of birds and animals, nice park for kids to play and relax, water fountain type swimming pool for kids. A small zoo but very nicely maintained.

Perfect for kids.
Jul 2014 • Family
This is a cute little zoo in the town of La Chaux-de-Fonds, where I live, and the zoo is visited at least once a month because our 3 year old really loves this place. There are small bears, otters, goats, reindeers, birds, donkeys to name a few and all kinds of "not-so-cute" animals such as snakes, spiders and lizards in a separate house inside the zoo.

There is also a big playground for the children to play which also includes minor water park so for a warm day the kids can play in the water and then continue to look at the animals. And the best thing? IT'S FREE!

This place in town (nearby the center) is THE PLACE to rest, to have wonderful experiences with animals (bears, snakes,...). There's also a game place for children.

Perfect break-out

this is a really nice place where you can relax and walk around. it's a little zoo with local species, human size where kinds are king and can easily discover animals or play in one of the playground... perfect place with easy access and free of charges.
