We visited the zoo on a week day and were able to find ample parking on the street. I can imagine parking would be more difficult on a weekend, or in the summer when kids are out of school. The zoo is a nice size, with a variety of animals. All of the animals seemed well cared for and their enclosures were clean. We really enjoyed watching the seals. A few of the enclosures were empty, this may have been due to the cooler weather. The zoo was easy to navigate with a stroller. Overall we really enjoyed the zoo.
A good zoo to visit if you are in the surroundings. There is not much parking place (we came on a bank holiday and everything was full). I have to say that the zoo is well distributed, you can walk for hours and you don't feel that you're in the middle of the city. The animals are well taken care of and it is a nice place to visit with your kids.
