A nice zoo with beautiful gardens. Some peculiar and exciting animals. Don't miss going by boat on the small lake in the middle of the zoo. All fish will come and meet and greet you :)

Located opposite the railway station, this zoo is spread out around a pond and a large park. Boasting an excellent play area and petting zoo for younger children, there is little to find fault with. Did I mention the entry prices were more than reasonable?

From what I remember, the park was very accessible. We saw many people with wheelchairs, strollers, twin-strollers, etc., which had access to everything we went to. As far as getting to the Zoo, we stayed at the Novotel... More
