Sad that there was no gorillas or elephants but managed to get some excellent photos of the lion pride, a bit small compared to others but very well kept. Signs need to be French and English. And the canteen was way too expensive.

I visited there with our 8 year old daughter during the half term. Not far from the centre and 10 mins walk from the nearest metro station. Compact and well organised for visitors to walk through but spacious for animals. We were well impressed and...More

I visited Paris zoo in 2004 and it was run-down and overall an unpleasant experience. I believe that it shut for a number of years but the present version is really superb. It is not big but adopting a relaxed pace you can still spend...More

The last time I visited this Zoo was several years ago before the upgrade. What a huge difference it has made! We spent several hours here working our way around the enclosures. Two things I would personally improve on... update the signs to include more...More

Fantastic zoo and amazing value for money. Went on a whim for something to do and me and the other half loved it. We sat watching the baboons play for a good 45 mins. It seems the zoo gets busier late afternoon but was easy...More

There are a lot of small animals in the park. Bird part and tropical part are very interesting. I was expecting more big animals, as it is known as the one of the greatest Zoo in Europe. There are no elephants, par example.

I visited the Parc Zoologique several years ago. Since the renovation, this conservation resource really shines! The success with breeding within the Species Survival Plan (SSP) is remarkable.

We found the zoo well renovated in a modern style (i.e. also animal-friendly). The setting is pretty pleasant and makes a good walk around. Good offers for children. A lot of information, well presented (but not in Eglish). Overall a good day out. Count about...More

Visited in August during a holiday to Paris. We were staying near Notre dame and got the metro line 1 to the Saint Mande stop, then walked to the zoo from there which took around 15 mins, so a straightforward journey for tourists. The zoo...More

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise
lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and
impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small
parks. Landscaped havens are plentiful, from the Bercy
Park to La Coulée Verte and most impressively the Bois
de Vincennes, which even contains a medieval castle on
its doorstep. For an escape from the masses head to
this calming neighbourhood where real Parisians make
