“A great afternoon out”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

What a little gem! Brilliantly set out, some wonderful birds, great kids soft play area for those left with some energy. The cafe however was pretty dire. Cut down on the massive portions and give more quality would be my opinion. Well worth a visit though, just eat before you go!

“Great fun, lots to see and do. Great value for money.”
Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

I was expecting to get ripped off but was pleasantly surprised by the amount of birds and animals, play areas and activities. It was interesting, educating and fun. The indoor play area is a great addition, especially as its no extra cost! The souvenir shop was the biggest surprise because the prices were actually reasonable and we all came away with something.

“Great family day out”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

We love Paradise Park and keep on returning. It has the Jungle Barn for bad weather and energetic young visitors but we love it even more in good weather when we can get out to enjoy the fantastic birds and the farm animals, snakes etc. The free-flying bird display is well worth a watch and hand-feeding the lorikeets is an absolute must! Something for all the family.

“Quite surprised”
Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

I really didnt expect to enjoy our visit to Paradise Park as we had been many years ago when my daughter was young and it wasnt terribly interesting, however, we now have 2 young foster children and so we gave it a go and I was surprised how much fun we had.The 3 year old joined in the feeding of the penguins which he really enjoyed and the 2 year old particularly liked feeding carrots to the goats, pigs etc. The flying display was fun too so all round a good 3 hours had by all.

“Great place to visit”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Good all round place to visit, loads of interesting things to see, tannoy announces 10 minutes before something special is going to happen, ie, feeding times at the otter pools, or a flying display by the Birds of Prey exhibit.

We spent around three hours there and still was not sure if we had seen everything.

Great day for the kids, they will see and learn a lot about our wildlife.
