Four adults and one 9 yr old. we enjoyed the zoo, it take about 2 hours to go round and is well worth the money. I think it was 3 euros for adults and free for the child. There is not much to do in Dunkirk so this was definitely worth doing.

Great little zoo at an amazing price. Under 15euro for a family. The zoo is not too big, but also not too small. In my idea just the perfect size for visiting on a afternoon with young children. They don't have exotic animals such as giraffes, elephants, lions like in other big zoos but they still have a wide enough... More

I will write the first paragraph from my toddlers point of view. The zoo is quite small thus allowing you to see the animals closer than ever before. You have a section for the seals whereby on two separate floors you can see the seals from above and below. You also have a mini play park for children plus other... More

The zoo is very small but it doesnt pretend to be anything else. Before you enter the zoo signs tell you there are about 200 animals. Free parking is available in several lots surrounding the campus. A bus load of children were leaving as we arrived and during the 1.5 hours we spent there we had the place to ourselves.... More

We visited in the May half term and found it extremely good value for money - I think it was 10 euros for 2 adults & 2 children. Most enclosures were large & well kept and the animals seemed relatively happy. Unfortunately the red squirrel didn't look happy at all. But the most sad sight to see was the 2... More

This Zoo is excellent, if you know what to expect. It is not a large zoo, with large animals, but is very good. We go over to France about 4 times a year and we have to go here every time, sometimes twice, as my son loves it. His favourite are the seals. It is also the home of Casper... More

Popped into the zoo after seeing reviews on trip advisor. The zoo it self is fairly small we finished it within an hour, think we were the only ones there as it was very quiet. Cost 9 euros for 2 adults a 5 and 2 year old, very cheap. Kids loved it. There were lots of different birds, bears, seals,... More

I found this on the Dunkerque Tourist Site, and thought it would be good for a few hours. We were surprised at how nice it was for the 12 euro's we paid to get in (3 adults and 3 children). The staff were very helpful and friendly. The toilets are spotless. The animals were great, we couldn't see the Lynx... More
