  • It's too bad that the guides do not mention this park worth visiting by the richness of its flora. Surrounded by roads to several bands, this park inspires calm... finally found in a bustling city. There will be also many pens, housing mostly monkeys, birds, and amphibians. The free tour of the Park can be done before the climb to the Peak.

  • Very good children playground with good and safe play facilities. Washrooms convenient. Zoo has plenty of good collection of exotic animals and birds. Zoo is clean and tidy with no smell. Greenhouse has plenty of interesting exotic plants. Fountain is famous for its design. Lots of stone structures worth taking pictures.
  • We went twice, we like it! Quiet, with some animals, mainly birds and monkeys. It is a pleasant walk and visit. There is also a little playground for kids. Lot of direction board make it easy to find, not so far from peak, maybe 10 to 15 minutes walking.
  • After being to a few gross zoos and parks this was refreshing. Everything was so clean and lush. Free entry to see a bunch of different monkeys and birds that were having a great time by the look of them, all very healthy. Worth a look around the whole place!
  • The best place to relax after seeing busy life there. It's not crowded. Love the flower. Eventhough you need more effort to go there (if you go by feet), it's worth.
  • excellent park. variety of animals and plants available. you can also have. nice view of the Victoria Peak and the surroundings. and the best of it...... it is free!!!!
