The food at the restaurant in the park was awesome and affordable. The Zoo is very affordable and is a great attraction for a half day excursion.

The park is beautiful and peaceful with a little café to the one side. The animal park has some really interesting creatures as well as some super cute, more interactive creatures :) good with friends, family, or your partner.

I really enjoyed this little zoo, cheap to get in and bigger than I anticipated for a park zoo.
Lots of birds, fish, monkeys and other small animals too, all seem to be well looked after, well fed and happy too.

It took us a good 90 mins to walk around the whole zoo, it wasn't very busy. Unfortunately the reptile house wasn't open when we went but there was plenty of other attractions.

I liked that there was also some non captive wildlife at the zoo, some birds a type of goose, clearly free but had nested, some had chicks, one even sat on her eggs in a nest she had made on a wall. Wild monkeys too, they get in and steal the food, looks like they are mostly chased away but we saw a couple of cheeky ones!

There is a lot of birds and a few mammals. But the problem is that some of the pathways sand and branches. The dark house was empty. Door open no sign visable to inform what was taking place.

There was a dead rat that no one removed even when the cashier was informed.

The park however is pleasant.

There's also a zoo there with lots of birds etc and educational .
