The park was much more than we expected especially since it was FREE. It had lion, tiger, giraffes, bears, a panda, and much more.

We loved the zoo and it is totally for free. Really great is apart from the red pandas also the petting zoo!! Only minus is the really small area that is there for the lion and the tiger, it made me a little bit sad.
