Park in renovation , definitely worth a visit even during the works but let's hope they do something about the signs and indications in the park and fill up the many empty spaces and cages somehow. Great that it's free entrance of course but sometimes you get a feeling of being a bit lost while walking in the park. The infrastructure could also use an upgrade.

The zoo is totally free to enter and you just pay for the ticket around 6€ per person to visit the greenhouse. The greenhouse is warm enough to see lots of beautiful plants and cute animals. The zoo is a big enough to let your child explore more things around. Its a good place for family time. However, you need to be ready to walk in the heat on the very sunny days of summer.

Wonderful surprise at this city zoo. Located in the forest of an old domaine, the animal enclosures are large, well spread out and perfect for children to see the animals up close. What surprised us was that the zoo entrance is free and so is the parking. There is a small charge for the new Amazon display but this was also worth the visit. The main zoo offers giraffes, lions, rhinos, monkeys and lots of African species. Easy to take a picnic, no crowds despite being half term and perfect for walking amongst the trees in the sunshine.

We thought the zoo was really poor. Vast area of trees,shrubs and forest, yet the animals which were few, had limited space and no vegetation. Consequently, they looked totally bored and we felt quite sorry for them. We have visited several zoos in recent years, including Madrid, London, Chester and one in Cyprus last year which was excellent. This zoo needs a complete overhaul and with all the available space, needs a team of environmentalists to make best use of it for the benefit of the animals and visitors. Another point, the signage and path markers need improving because it isn't easy to follow the trails.
