A lovely little zoo with small animals such as monkeys, pigs, birds, guinea pigs, lamas, etc. You can walk through the aviary, climb stairs to look down on the monkeys, etc. You can't pat most of the animals and there are warning signs for the...More

A very small animal park but it is free. The children ( and some parents ) will love it. Includes a playground and hands on experience with some of the animals. Surrounded by lovely gardens. Enjoyed the walk through aviary in particular. Highly recommended.

This is only a small zoo, but very good for small kids as well as adults. It is FREE to enter and contains a number of barnyard animals like pigs and chickens, as well as monkeys, meerkats and a flight aviary. Well worth a visit
