Some cool enclosures for the monkeys and birds. Good farm yard spot with pigs etc but most popular was the playground. Pity the water fountain wasn't working.

The kids love it here and now our grandkids. It's not a big zoo so it's easy for the little ones to walk around. A great play ground and swings. Right next door is brooklands park with big wide open areas,great for picnics
