  • We had a lovely spring day to enjoy the animals in a relaxed smaller zoo. This was nice if only to save our feet, having walked for miles the days before. The kids (one tween, two teens) enjoyed the a...  more »
  • A zoo that despite its small size (zoo in the heart of the city anyway) shows many species such as the binturong, the otters of Asia, otocyons, primates, birds and even an African plain a size comfortable for animals (Watusis, Hartmann's Zebra and giraffes). I'm pleasantly surprised of the number of species that are in European breeding program (EEP). There are in all the zoos in the positive and negative points (even in "supposedly" most beautiful zoos). However it seems to me that it is positive in many ways. Visit backstage under reservation is rewarding for visitors who want more information on animals, the role of zoos in general, the evolution of menagerie to zoo today and the visit of the giraferie is frankly incredible, it's time to ask the questions that torments us. Healers also realize animations on certain themes. In short, a zoo which is worth a visit!

  • It is free, which is great. The red pandas were a first for me, and I enjoyed seeing the lion. As mentioned previously, not enough space has been given to some animals, and one of the zebras seemed to have difficulty walking. As can be expected, it was quite crowded.
  • Simple but free! Very beautiful Parc.
  • If you like wild animals it is a good idea to visit.
  • Small collections but beautifully maintained.
  • Nice but small and very crowded. But still it's great to see a real zoo that is free to the public.
