  • Huge place, but with little space for animals, especially cats that stay in tiny cages. A great lack of planning and to cuddle with animals

  • The Zoo also known as Woods, is a very cool place to get closer to the animals. Well worth a visit.

  • For those who know since I was a kid, visit the woods are the most frustrating experience. Where's all the fun the children had at the top? Landed the pool, closed the canteen, removed the play. When I was a kid, I was the best place in the world for a child to go. Nowadays, my daughters have no desire to attend the place, because there's nothing to do ... View animals in captivity can be kind of sad.
