  • Definitely worth getting the annual pass if you live in the vicinity. We go here all the time - usually combined with a trip to the Mall first. It's a fun few hours for everyone and the park has been imaginatively set out of. There are loads of animals to spot and the information about the animals and conservation is really interesting for both adults and children. The recently opened Bear Wood is also worth seeing. Bring a picnic as there are plenty of picnic tables. But they do have great pizzas there as well.
  • Visited twice this summer. The new Bear Woods is fantastic and it is so lovely to see the animals in such a wonderful large habitat. It is clear that they have plenty of space to roam and plenty of interesting things to do. The staff and volunteers are always happy to answer all our questions about the animals and are so informative. The lemur walk is a lovely touch and it was the highlight of our trip. Great fun spotting the painted bears and the real ones with our 5yo nephew.
