    Without being one of the best zoos in the world, or much less, it is a very worthy Park, with an entrance wide and pleasant, although very neglected maintenance. The Park was opened in the 1970s and I believe that maintenance was very poor. It has a train service which makes you a good tour of the Park to let yourself in the upper area of the same. Facilities are spacious and well adapted to the animals, but at the same time it allows you to view them from relatively close. The worst thing that has is the environment of the Zoo, a dirty and disorderly neighborhood, with too much pollution to one of the streams that flow through the Park, making that at certain times the odor is not pleasant, but it is something that is not the responsibility of the Park. I recommend it to families with children.

    It is a good place to go to breathe fresh air or also to make some exercise especially in the mornings. Inside something maintenance lacks, but it has improved.
