Last time I visited was last summer and first of all, it's not a zoo, it's a zoological park - meaning that the animals aren't in cages (unless there's an illness or something), therefore yes, you might not see all the species (which is a good thing!) as they have open spaces to walk around and the park tried to...

I don't like the idea of keeping animals in cages and I usually feel depressed after visiting them in zoos. Here we actually seen groups of animals playing and running as they have spacious corners and well equipped. We loved the ants.

The parc is amazing: very clean, ver cozy -not very big or limited. The display of the animals is very nice and creative. There is a forest with a lake in front of the zoo lake where u can picnic and the kids enjoy feeding the duck or a ride in the canoe

If you are in need of something easy for the kids, then this is a nice zoo. Not many tourists, mostly locals. This place has been completely renovated and the enclosures are very nice. it's big enough to be enjoyable and not overwhelming.

Small zoo and quite expensive. Its difficult to see some animals because there are very few points of view and they are far (its the case of the lion f.e.). On the other hand, the protection crystals reflects the light so you cannot see very much in the terrarium and inside the greenhouse.

A good day out for all. Although the park is quite small compared to zoos in the U.K., it had lots to see. The zoo was clean and looked after well. An enjoyable day out.

We visited this zoo with three kids 7 6 and 2. They all enjoyed it, it was a great trip. They enjoyed playing with the interactive boards. Zoo is well kept and has an excellent selection of animals with great viewing points. The reason for a 4 star not 5 is the lack of support for English. This seems to... More

While spending a long weekend in Paris we decided to go to Le Parc Zoologique. We bought a metro ticket from the Grands Boulevard metro station and for 2 adults (return) it cost just under €8 in total. From the metro station (Line 8, Porte Dorée station), it was less than a 10 minute walk and the zoo is well... More

The zoo is really clean, not too busy and a great way to spend 4hrs in paris! The viewing stations are really well set up so that you can get close to the animals, particularly the puma, penguins,giraffes and rhinos. For paris the food, drinks and entrance fee are pretty standard price. The only improvement i can think of would... More

This zoo is just amazing! Definetly at my top 3 of zoos I have visited (among Copenhagen and San Diego). It has been recently opened after few years of renovation. And they did a great job! There is a huge artificial rock, which can be seen even outside of the zoo. The conditions for animals are very good and the... More
