Whilst not a fan of keeping animals in captivity I recognise that some zoos are essential to maintain good breeding programs - and incidentally provide an educational experience without causing animal suffering. Thessaloniki zoo is not one of these. It is best described as a seedy shambles. I suppose it was once an aesthetically pleasing environment, but that too has degraded. There are a few animals and rather more birds, but please do not visit this place and thereby give continued reason for its existence. The Bears? Well they went to Arcturos in Florida where they are well cared for in a decent environment.

This is a nice park to walk about if you like a lot of steps and woodland and the aroma of goat poo.

They only had three types of animal: birds, goats and deer. There were lots of empty cages and it was very hard to navigate around the park as it was a bit of a maze with no signs or arrows to follow a sensible path. It is NOT buggy friendly.

On the plus side the goats were friendly.

More like a park, not zoo and that's what I'm glad about. Most of the animals they fit in and are taken care of. Would not feel happy and relaxed in a a overgrouded place with all kinds living creatures that doesnt belong.
A wolf seemed to be extremely stressed and afraid. These animals better would be relocated elsewhere, with cages that gives them some privacy too and space (how about the climate and temperature...?). Otherwise, with small animals and this lovely donkey, this parkfarm is a cute place for sundaywalks, and spend time with family.

When you enter the zoo, you see a lot of ducks running loose. Also rabbits and a male peacock. More than half of the cages are empty but hey, it's free! Capricorns, deers, goats, sheep, a donkey, reindeer, turtles ...
It's not so well maintained but it's worth a walk on a hot day. Go with bus 24 from the city center (last stop) or walk. You will pass by some nice bars with a view over the city.
