The Zoo was nice. Not to big but kind of informative and place for a nice walk. Restaurant with a view to the giraffes was a pleasant surprise. A well spent time there.

Impressive array of animals to view, a decent play area and a petting zoo area. Despite the €14 entry fee there was so much going on the day whizzed by. Great fun. Plenty of free parking too.
