Top tips

🌞 Before you set off 🌞

Remember the five rules of the park

  • 1 – Animals need peace and quiet: Move slowly and don’t shout so as not to frighten them or scare them off.
  • 2 – Do not encroach on their territory: Don’t approach animals or climb over fences and keep to footpaths.
  • 3 – Keep to designated picnic areas.
  • 4 – Do not feed the animals or throw anything in enclosures. Our animals all have strict diets to ensure their well-being. Do not risk making them ill by giving them “treats”.
  • 5 – Keep the park clean and tidy. Dispose of your litter responsibly.
