Fun park to explore with children's zoo. The park itself is quite big and features various animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs, wallabies, marmosets, meerkats, snakes, reptiles and fish.

5year old granddaughter loved seeing all the animals especially the snakes. Good access for prams and wheelchairs around mini zoo. If a good day plenty of places to have a picnic. Walks around grounds can be slippy and not suitable for anyone with mobility problems
