Overview

There's a world of enjoyment at Battersea Park Children's Zoo. From feeding the farm animals, spying on the meerkats in the secret lookout, children will have hours of fun. With monkeys, snakes, pigs, donkeys, ring tailed lemurs, parrots, rabbits, emu, chipmunks, coati, wallabies and chickens, plus a fun-packed adventure playground with a real tractor and fire engine, it's a great family day out.

I do like that there are some animals for children to see but also feels kind of cruel to me and a bit sad, they are meant to be free. Regardless, it is a nice place and the surrounding park is nice with a Japanese...More

As others have said it's not very big and is quite expensive but our 5 year old had a great time. There's a great play area with sand and water along with tunnels for the kids to climb through. Battersea park itself is also well...More

Yes it is small, but ideal for little children. My grandson loved the play area inside the zoo grounds-lots of sand and water equipment and even a fire engine to sit in!. Animals are well kept, and many hours could be spent in Battersesea Park...More
