  • Too less place for the animals, Zoo from the last centurie. The animals should have much more space...  more »
  • I liked the natural format of the zoo, but didn't like too much the attractions. I would prefer to pay and give animals more support. At least donations would help.  more »
  • The animals are treated well-that's what you expect from a zoo. But several empty enclosures, with acknowledgement of maintenance and no place to feed, or diner. The entrance is for free and give a good lesson to children, but does not have what to do in a second visit.

  • Great place in Rio Preto to get in touch with nature! Is a great place for anyone who loves watching birds and shooting them (there are a wide variety of bird species loose in the Park!) and other loose animals like monkeys, tortoises, agoutis and others. There is also a good variety of animals, however, arrested. Is a great place for family leisure!
