Love this zoo because it only takes you a couple hours to walk through it. Lots of shade on the walk and picnic areas. The staff are friendly and the kids playground is good too.

I liked it because it wasn't big and was pleasant to walk around. I actually came across it by mistake when I took a wrong turn and was glad I did. My teenage daughter and I had a great time.

A good day out for the whole family. It is a bit hilly but scooters were available. Nice playground and good area for picnic. Well kept, plenty of animals and birdlife to see and a good cafe to enjoy a nice coffee at the end.
