My parents, my husband and I took my baby daughter here as we thought she would be interested in watching the butterflies and birds. The butterfly house was ok, in need of replanting and a bit of a makeover, however the the birdhouse was horrendous - absolutely covered in bindweed, I've seen better front gardens with mattresses in them. It was a greenhouse with no ventilation and was far too hot for the (few) birds who were motionless and seemed desperately unhappy. The gardens were poor, the animal exhibits were all overgrown to the point where you could not see the animals and the nostalgia museum was an extremely weird addition and also very outdated and filthy.
This could be an excellent attraction but it needs serious investment, the tickets weren't cheap so you'd think at a minimum they could hire a gardener to take out the worst of the weeds once a week. If my garden and my pets looked like that I'd be ashamed, not open it out to the public!
