The zoo is small but SO well kept and free. The play area just outside was also good for boys to get rid of some energy. I am sure we will be back a couple more times this holiday 😀

Found this zoo by accident while walking down next to the river. Nice small zoo and doesn't take long to go and look at what they have. Situated in a nice park.
