  • Many enclosures are currently empty. There are very many construction sites in the plant (rubble mountain). Also, the parks are not well maintained. Everywhere, rotten branches laying around. There are a few playgrounds, where you can also Broil. This is the only positive aspect.

  • The botanical gardens are amazing. So many interesting species. The animals are housed in very unattractive conditions and are very limited.  more »
  • For the sake of animals and the preservation of the place, I think that they should make an investment to improve all over the place, animal cages are small. Arriving without particular truck can be a little complex.
