“It's not the biggest Zoo but it's nice”
Review of Boras Djurpark

I am so happy this zoo is in my home city I get a year pass every season and go there whenever the weather is nice. they have a nice collection of animals and they seem to be treated very well.

make sure you go to their homepage and see the feeding times for the day you are going. it's the best opportunity to see some of the shy animals.

If you are only going once make sure you have at least 4 hours. I usually go 4 hours the first time every year and then I just go back to take pictures of the animals I like the most.

This Zoo is a good Zoo and I believe that they have genuine interest in the animals welfare and life.
Getting around it easy and what I’m about to say probably is more a statement to the size of Borås and Sweden than anything else.
The admittance is quite some money for a whole family and what you get to see is little compared to places elsewhere in the world.
Seeing everything takes far less than a full day and the second round is not as much fun as the first, nor is the third.
On the other hand, Borås hasn’t got that many all family attractions, so in that category it is outstanding.

Visiting the zoo was a great experience for the grandchildren. Lots of animals. Huge displays. Great walking paths. There was lots to see.

There was horseback riding, driving small cars, and other experiences for the children. Each of these adventures were over much too quickly and cost a disproportionate amount for what we received.....

If the recollections are correct, entry price for adults was almost $15. Which were certainly more than enough..... But the kids had fun, they came home happy, tired, pleased. Grandpa had no problems with all the walking. If you have grandchildren, this is certainly worth a visit. One time.

My family and I spent a very enjoyable day out at the "Borås Djurpar" (Animal Park) in May. The park is huge and hilly, so prepare for some walking! For 30 Swedish Krona we loaned a cart / trolley from just beyond the ticket office for my 3 year old to sit in, as it would have been too much for him to walk around all day. A good tip for families!

The animals had lots of space to roam in, and good habitat, so in general I would describe it as one of the better animal parks I have visited. The bear enclosure was particularly good. May was low season, so many of the ice-cream/coffee kiosks around the park were not yet open. During peak season I would imagine you are never far from refreshments. The park also has numerous BBQ stations, so you can bring your own food and cook yourself! There were also lots of playgrounds scattered around, so the kids were never bored.

My only negative comment about the park is that they need to have more ticket offices open for the 10am opening, at as the queue/line-up was long and took nearly 40 minutes to pay and get in.

Definitely a place to visit with the family!
