“Kids adored it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Perfect for small children and a good way to spend a day as long as outside temperatures are fine (November to April). A lot of improvements which are still on going.
The kids like feeding the giraffes.

“Don't even think of reading this review”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2013

Highly disappointed, there is nothing, few pet-like animals in a very small area. Not built with full hearted efforts. I found it waste of time. even my 8 years old daughter could not stand 1 hour there. Best to skip

“Renamed: Emirates Park Zoo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2013

Recently they are renamed to be Emirates Park Zoo, perfect place for a short trip with small kids. You will find the atmosphere of "the back yard of a shaikh's house' in the zoo, everything is within kids' walking distance, the kids can feed the animals (the zoo guard will guide and direct you which animal can be fed and with what food), they can even fed the baby lamb with mommy lamb's milk in a bottle. So wonderful and exciting! All basic animals you'd love to see in the zoo are available, started from all kinds of lambs and goats and sheeps and cows, lots of types of birds, reptils house with lots of animals, ocean house with lots of sea and river's fishes and other animals, wild animals e.g. lions, jaguar, girrafe, etc. It is perfect, as mentioned, for a 2 - 3 hours outing with small kids, they have canteens everywhere selling popcorns, hot dogs, ice cream, gazebo style resting corner, etc. If you are with teenagers, you might better go to Al Ain Zoo. But with Kids under 10, it is really perfect.
