  • We thought see animals and beautiful plants... it's a failure, it will have to wait to be in the Amazon. The garden (merit t it that title?) is completely abandoned, plants lack water and care. The space devoted to orchids present 4 or 5 different species (and not in great shape), same for the cactus and the bonsai. And what about animals? A shame. In overcrowded and dirty aquariums, qqs fish trying to survive. The monkeys have no Greens and cages are tiny. Ditto for the turtles and birds that must be close to depression. Access to the Park by a true open air discharge, short pass your way there is nothing to do.
