You are more than welcome to bring your own picnic. There are plenty of places to sit around the Zoo or if the weather is not too great there is the undercover picnic area by the playground.

The whole Park is served by flat wide tarmac paths and roadways. Otherwise the site is laid to lawn.which is level and so very slightly sloping you would not notice. Car parks are grass and gravel.
