DO NOT VISIT THIS PLACE! Its absolutely terrible for the animals! They smaller animals have small small cages with no daylights, walking at concrete. The seals has a small water cage with no where to hide. It’s like a zoo from the 90th and I...More

My boyfriend and I (32 and 24) visited the zoo today and to be honest, had a really good time. We were under no illusions- as we had looked at the website prior- and really enjoyed wandering around and seeing the animals! We spent about...More

The zoo is really small with few animals. The only interesting moment was to see the seals swimming in the pool in the middle of this zoo. Apart from that there is not much to see (if you have never saw chickens or geese).

Wouldn't actually be able to comment on the zoo itself as despite the website claiming to be open on New Years day, it was in fact closes. My partner and I had walked for 40 minutes to get to the zoo only to find it...More

Went here with my husband and 20 month old baby. Everything (rides etc) were all closed and there were nothing but farm animals that you can see at the side of the road if you were to drive outside the city. Nothing special, but I...More

Very small zoo which has mostly domesticated farm animals, some deer and minks. You can get really close to the seals and they are the star attraction. There is no seal show.

I notice a lot of people criticizing this place as "good for kids" and I wonder if that misses the point. It is literally called a "family park" and is deliberately geared for kids. If you don't have kids, don't expect much. If you do,...More

Went with my 21 year old daughter. She'd have lived it when she was under 10 as there is a huge kids play area at the top end of the zoo. The actual zoo is OK with some cute baby seals and Arctic foxes. Spent...More
