Monkeying around

fun ark - net - small - 1

There are several play areas around the zoo, each designed for different age ranges which allow children to have fun and burn off some energy in a safe environment.

The challenges include climbing walls, scramble nets, ladders and slides, as well as rockers and stepping stones for smaller ones.

For safety the play areas use soft fall or rubberised surfaces, however it is important that adults supervise the children at all times. For your convenience the play areas are located close to lawns or seating.

Find our play areas and face painting on our map.

In addition to the play areas for the children, the adults can join in the fun and play mini golf or having their face painted.
