  • Orleans Park. I entered for the first time since I was a child, believing that there were almost more pets ... Instead I found many, mostly birds, in an exceptional and unnatural in my view zoos are anyway so I wouldn't have heard otherwise. But the most terrible thing of all that does not give me peace ... Who, I would like to know, who puts a small monkey, an animal absolutely huge social, alone in a cage? How can you do such a thing? I've been more than twenty minutes to keep it attached to the plastic cage and her opinion on the other side was trying as a contact. Repetitive and compulsive behaviors had deep stress, throwing objects, scratched furiously ... He tormented the heart was like seeing a little human being in total isolation, a small Lifer without faults. This creature needs a more appropriate place and the company of other animals of its kind because those who know the monkeys can only definitely this cruelty. I have the moral ground.

  • Site adjacent to the metro stop just a few metres from the Terminal d'Orleans and urban and suburban buses, this park, adjacent to the headquarters of ARS (Sicilian Regional Assembly), can be visited every day, for free, as long as people accompanying minors. Leafy grounds are very well kept. Within various species of birds (parrots, eagles, Ravens, pink flamingos, ducks, geese, chickens, emu, Canaries, sparrows) and also monkeys and deer. Too bad the Region, over the years has increasingly cut funds for maintenance and make the animal species and other expenses which is no longer present. Park ideal for spending a few relaxing hours with children

  • I honestly thought better. The entrance is the best kept, then for the rest, it will also partially in maintenance but the overall impression is of abandonment. Mice in cages. Neat little cin grime a little everywhere. These poor animals that give the impression of being abandoned. There we are. Board of walk. Parking in the area.

  • Lovely place very close by to the history centre of the city, directly infront of the old Royal Palace. One negative tidbit though... not a lot of space to sit! I believe there are... 3 benches? Then again, its a small park so it should be no problem most of the time. Great spot for kids or just to relax a little bit.
  • Crazy Birds! A world of exotic birds! It is a perfectly maintained park. Everything from the little signs talking about the different species of birds to the perfectly hedged greenery. Oddly enough there are goats there too. I got a good chuckle out of the sign that said please don't feed the goats because what people were feeding them gave them health problems so now they are on a strict diet. There are birds of all types from ALL over the world. I have since then read that this park is ONLY for parents who wish to bring their kids. I have been there several times without any hassle. If you just walk in, don't speak Italian, don't stop, start taking pictures asap, I believe the men inside the booth couldn't care less. If they do say something to you just start speaking English and hold up your camera and point to it. I'm sure at that point they will realize you are a tourist and not bother trying to explain to you that you should have kids with you. I also read that this park was just finished in 2010 and is part of a bigger plan. It will only be a small section of the larger park that will have an outdoor theater, an artificial lake, bike paths and trails.

  • Than when I was a kid has changed (for the worse). Small space, animals, but in number and variety much lower than before. But, it's a beautiful villa that bring children ...

  • Place completely abandoned when I was little was more cared for, is in total disrepair, I am ashamed that there are thieves! And how good is the total cultural and environmental degradation! The money should be spent on a common good as in all other cities, you prefer to pour them into the pockets of several villains who offices very close! What a shame!
