Prehistoric Playground

Prehistoric Playground now open!

Located near the Essex Farm, the zoo’s new playground is a fun place for children to explore and mimic some of the wild animals at the zoo. Featuring over-sized dinosaurs and plenty of climbing structures, the playground is always a hit with the children. The playground is closed during the winter and during inclement weather.
