Having lived nearby I remember this park starting up and I am sure it was little more than a pets corner. I returned recently as a parent, taking my 2 children aged 9 and 7. The entrance is via a garden centre and at first...More

I was pleasantly surprised to see how this centre had grown as it was many years since I visited previously and at that time I was unimpressed. It was good to see the information on each cage about the occupant, giving details of their past...More

Doing their best but rather run down. But the whole of the garden centre has that feel they are struggling to survive. Failed to see the wolf which upset my grandson, but that's animals for you. We wouldn't go back, and that's what they need,...More

Dear jojom66, Thank you for your review. I'm sorry yet surprised that you think the centre is run down; we have completed a significant amount of building work in the last couple of years. We have literally just opened the new flying area and pathways....More
