There's a world of enjoyment at Battersea Park Children's Zoo. From feeding the farm animals, spying on the meerkats in the secret lookout, children will have hours of fun. With monkeys, snakes, pigs, donkeys, ring tailed lemurs, parrots, rabbits, emu, chipmunks, coati, wallabies and chickens, plus a fun-packed adventure playground with a real tractor and fire engine, it's a great family day out.

I found that the knowledge of the Zoo Keepers were very informative and we were able to understand everything they told us about each animal. The park was very well set out, and the children`s play park was wonderful.

We had friends staying this weekend with a 14 month old baby, she is toddling around and loves animals so what better place to take her than Battersea Park Children's Zoo. Monkeys, donkeys, rabbits, guinea pigs, the odd rodent, snake, Wallabies, chickens and Cockrells. The...More

I'd say so, there's opportunities for safe interaction with some of the animals. There are play areas and benches and it was no trouble getting there on public transport from Archway. It's a small scale operation and what it... More
