  • Is one of the sights of Bethlehem who suffers from the lack of maintenance. Other than that, it's simply fantastic! With a compact forest preserved in the midst of the city, can you give us a sense of being out of town. With beautiful historic buildings, meandering rides and a zoo with Amazonian animals. Recommend children and adults will love.

  • The place is clean, the animals seem well cared for and of course, the flora is beautiful. However, the Museum closes the three, which is quite absurd for local population working or develop any activity, making it impossible to visit and being a place for tourists to see. At the Museum, on the day that I went to had at least 5 employees sitting doing absolutely nothing and none of them with you on the tour. The guy who keeps on getting you even get up from the Chair. The park itself is beautiful, but it's absurd the lack of signage, the plates are reporting only "exit," "diner" and "sanitary", does not exist ANY plate guiding you to the animals. Within the Park found just 3 maps, I thought it was strange because nothing was in Braille (and usually in the River at least) is a place little accessible. The rare cards that exist for identification of plants and animals are degraded and are on the inside of the fence, which complicates even more the reading. The place looks deserted and to receive unstructured visitor, which is a shame because it is indeed beautiful. It is worth mentioning that although be no guides in the park or museum guides weeken break and not said absolutely nothing but sit, the cleaning crew is there working, the Park is very clean and they help you to locate within the Park. Oh, and it was the first such location not provided (at least according to the face of the Museum not rose) trail. They only tell you "go walking down the left. The Park has incredible trees and towering, well-maintained animals and don't have trails to ensure that they are seen is a shame. You as a visitor enters and is completely lost, is a waste of tourist potential.
