Parken Zoo is a combined amusement park and zoo in the town of Eskilstuna in Sweden.

The amusement park was founded in 1898, and there was a display of animals from the beginning of the fifties. In 1954 Parken Zoo started to charge visitors an entrance fee. In 1956 the zoo displayed around 200 animals.

During the eighties the zoo started to specialize in feline carnivores.

In 2013 a clouded leopard escaped from its enclosure and killed three deer.

  • A pretty broad park experience with a bit of everything, mostly tailored to children. Mainly tidy and clean, with some few (not too good) options for food and drinks throughout the park area. Animals seem to have proper pens but some look like they exhibit some stress behaviours. A little bit of a steep entry fee but at least access to everything (including free rides) is included.
  • Great place for kids with lots of animals and very manageable walking distances. We had lunch in a lovely buffet restaurant in the shopping centre next to the zoo, as eating facilities at the zoo are not the best.
