The animal centre, now called Hanwell Zoo as of 1st April 2017, is an educational, community zoo suitable for people of all ages. Previously a free-to-enter council run zoo since 1975, the Zoo has had to start charging £2.50 for adults and £1 for children due to council funding cuts. The variety of animals is astonishing and provides a unique... More

With the new branding came also an entrance fee, 2.50 GBP. It is a small area with a rather random collection of animals, from rabbits to meerkats, maras and in the future alpacas and quite a few smaller and some bigger birds and some reptiles. There is some information on the animals, and it is quite popular with kids.

Lovely little mini zoo, and perfect for younger children to wander around. Small free car park and lots of open space near by to burn off their energy. Great place for popping in after school during the summer months or for a couple of hours at the weekend. Staff friendly and helpful. Lots of community involvement projects seem to be... More

We decided to take our child here, as we haven't been here since we were kids and wanted to see what it was like. One thing I was surprised at was the car park (limited spaces) and the children's zoo was FREE! There is a donation section in the zoo, but unfortunately while we were there we didn't see anyone...

Came here for a few hours with my daughters and granddaughter on the recommendation of someone who hadn't been here for twenty years or more!!! Although there was a lot of building work going on. we still saw the meerkats and the fascinating Mara's (a cross between a rabbit and a deer) and a few other animals. We really enjoyed... More

Had a very nice picnic. The park is very clean and tidy. Children enjoyed the little animal zoo also really enjoyed the maze. There is a shop and public toilet. Down side is: 1. Parking is a big issue almost impossible to find parking. 2. There is no water fountain if there is any I couldn't see it. Overall this... More

Have visited this park for a number of years. We were regulars when our children were small. Now we are grandparents take our grandchildren. What we like about this park is everything the way it's kept clean. It is a huge place with a mini zoo which currently has peacocks, lemurs, birds, budgies, goats, hens, cockerels, chicks, ducks, and more.... More
