Some lovely animals to be found in this gem of a park. Some sections are being renovated - new signage was obvious on some reserves. Great to see red pandas, and, my favourite, coatis.

We took the chance to visit whilst the Manx GP was on and despite the difficulty finding the place in the back roads it was well worth the effort. The animals appear to be well cared for and you can get really close.
