  • Quite big, lots to see. Situated in a calm and nice part of town. Lots of trees and fresh air. Unfortunately no good places to have a bite, but there were hot dog stands almost on every corner. Animals. Well I've seen worse conditions in some of other zoos. Although quite a few were under reconstruction. Because of that we couldn't see kangaroos or wolves an other animals. There is a nice petting zoo for kids, with lambs, baby goats, rabbits.
  • Amazing animals and decent sized zoo. Very nice zoo to visit for a couple of hours Map was slightly confusing and didn't have all the animals and areas. Seems like it was outdated. You can't pay by card anywhere in the zoo, so better take cash with you. Closest ATM is next to the zoo gate. Ticket price is affordable.
  • Nice place for walk. And seeing animals. Little small on indoor exhibition. Good and entertaining for gods if you go in feeding time
  • Fresh air, lot of animals, well kept Zoo. Amazing place for family visits, you can have a great picnic, with perfect view on the lake (next to the bears). Thorpe house, bee nest and lot of great ideas in this park. Kids really love this place. Affordable price too.
