Owner description: We are currently doing renovations: May First 2017 we celebrated the 75 Anniversary of our national ZOO, during the past 6 years major changes are occurring on our grounds. For example becoming a member of the species 360 global zoological database for the exchange and improvement of animal husbandry in captivity, we are also working on our accreditation to become a member of the global zoological organization. Our goals and mission for the future are to make of our national zoo a great area with international standards, this all cannot be completed only on the government funding, that’s why they are giving every person that visits the zoo the chance to adopt an animal or even an entire project. Upon request, we can give you an hour long educational tour. We also incorporated a social part to the development, giving a helping hand in education for our youth in the hands of the juvenile detention center, people with limitations are also very important in the development of our national ZOO, please inform yourself before your arrival of the current state, and eventually contact us for a private tour, so that you can admire the essence of the beautiful work being done. tours, can be scheduled during the week from Monday true Friday from 10AM till 2PM. For more information on our development please visit our website and click on our master plan icon.

The Parke Tropikal Zoo is a small park just outside the the center of Willemstad. The park is relatively small and doesn't house a lot of animals. They have a few exotic animals, that you would expect in such a small 'zoo': a female lion and a capibara. The cages for the animals are rather small, but that is to be expected for a small zoo. Some of the animals have new cages that are a lot bigger.

It takes about 30 minutes to walk through the park and see all the animals. There is a small bar in the park, where you can buy a soda or some snacks. It's a nice walk if you're already in the neighborhood, but it isn't a must-see in Willemstad.
