Animal enclosures not well kept. Many enclosures were empty, or so overgrown that it would not be possible to see if anything lived there.

Two bored kids are more than entertained at this little zoo in the park. Feed the ducks and other small mammals. Extensive range of birds and small monkeys.

Great to see the various exotic animals on display, it is well kept and neat. The park itself is still looking great, however the pond needs some work.

This could be a bigger attraction for tourists and locals- the zoo really needs attention. But it's still a lovely place to bring kids to, have a picnic etc and the flowerbeds are always well maintained and olourful
