A Visit to Paradise Wildlife ParkThings To Do
posted May 21st 2019
One of our grandparents, Mary, recently took three of her grandchildren to visit Paradise Wildlife Park in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire for a review for us and here’s what Mary had to say…
‘After travelling by car we found the Wildlife Park easy to find and access, there was lots of car parking available which was great especially as we arrived at 10am on a Saturday!
Upon entrance my three granddaughters, aged 7, 5 and 2, were all very excited as it was just before Easter and they were given a sheet for an Easter Egg Hunt which they were all inspired to go and find.
First port of call was the park, after the car journey it was good to let them run about and stretch their legs. The park was well-kept and had plenty for children of all ages so was great for the girls.
We then headed for the animals. There was a good assortment of animals, split in to global areas based on where the animals were found. We could all see the animals really well in their enclosures which was great, especially when visiting with little ones, although it’s fair to say that I’d have preferred to see more space for some of the animals. I was also a bit concerned when I saw pictures of people feeding big cats by putting their hands right up to the cage bars!
Whilst looking at the animals there was lots of interesting facts about the animals, we particularly like learning about the tiger ball and the power of the jaws of a tiger!
We then headed off to the dinosaur area which was a big hit for all three of the grandchildren (and the accompanying adults!).
There was a restaurant on the park which provided a selection of food which was of reasonable quality but the queues were long. We did wonder if this waiting could be eased by some activities to keep the children amused whilst waiting – just something to think about.
Our day at the Wildlife Park was great and the grandchildren really enjoyed themselves. If we had a suggestion, it would be to clearly mark out the routes, we had to backtrack a few times which can be a bit of a pain with a pushchair but it didn’t detract too much from the fun of our day.
We would like to say a BIG ‘Thank You’ to Paradise Wildlife Park for having us, we had a lovely day.’
We would like to say a big thank you to Mary and her family for their visit and review 🙂
Paradise Wildlife Park would also like re-assure everyone that Paradise follows the strictest laws on space for the animals and regulations for each enclosure, Paradise are also expanding and redoing some enclosures such as the lions, to ensure they are happy and thriving in their environment.
