Our family of 6 children and 6 adults enjoyed the day out. The bird house entertained family with a variety of birds turning on their charm. The walking paths were manageable for our toddlers and the 2 pushchairs with babies. Enjoyable and worth the effort.

We love Hamilton Zoo. The animals look like they are well looked after and unstressed if that makes sense. Kids love it too. More parking would be helpful especially during school holidays and maybe a night time experience.
