The park is not too big to walk around easily in an afternoon, and the animals are interesting and not too unhappy in their enclosures. The birds are particularly spectacular.

This zoo is one of the largest zoos in São Paulo state. It is a good place to go with kids. The zoo has lots of animals including a south american bear, guará wolf, anteater. The displays are large and sometimes the animals are hidden.
