Every aspect of the new Children’s Zoo is infused with fun, aimed at reinforcing children’s love of nature.
From the moment visitors first set foot on the walkway into the Children’s Zoo, the adventure begins.
Ring-tailed coatis represent the welcoming committee en route to the Tree Zone, where bright colours and interactive information stimulate the senses.
Next up is the Root Zone, where children can snuggle up close to an aardvark, explore underground tunnels like a prairie marmot, and fully get to grips with subterranean life in a risk-free environment.
We’ve had air and earth – now it’s time for water. The Splash Zone is where children can let off steam, while discovering more about the importance of water to life.
Alongside this zone is the story tepee where children can settle down to a good animal tale, and the Secret Garden, full of natural delights.
Children will then be able to visit the Touch Zone and meet the Zoo's pygmy goats, sheep and silky chickens.
Finally, llamas, alpacas and donkeys are on hand to say goodbye at the exit, ending a memorable experience for children that they will never forget.
