About
Parco Zoo Punta Verde is a privately run zoo and consequently receives no public funds. Its revenue is derived solely from its entrance fees. Parco Zoo Punta Verde’s mission is founded on four key points: Education of the public to raise awareness and sensitivity about animals and the environment, with targeted educational programs aimed at the general public and schools of all types and levels. Conservation of endangered species through in situ and ex situ programmes. The zoo’s visitors are active participants in its awareness and fundraising campaigns that allow endangered species to be protected in their natural habitats while offering the local populations opportunities for sustainable development. Research via partnerships with organizations such as universities, museums and scientific institutions in general. And last, but not least, the excitement of a day out for adults and children alike, in a pleasant setting that brings them into contact with nature, thus helping to respect it. Visiting a modern zoo means ensuring a future for nature, thanks to all the ventures aimed at preserving its delicate balance. Parco Zoo Punta Verde covers an area of 100,000 square metres in a loop of the Tagliamento river, in the north-western part of the Lignano peninsula, and is home to over 1,000 animals of around 200 species of mammals, birds and reptiles. The zoo is open from March to November; opening hours can be found on the official website

Fabulous zoo
Jun 2021 • Family
This zoo is wonderful. It's just the right size for a couple of hours and it's really well kept. There is plenty of shade and lots of good picnic areas. I highly recommend it. My children are 9 and 6 and they loved it

Great Zoo
Sep 2018 • Couples
We really like this zoo because it has lots of animals to see. It looks like it's taken good care for the animals and each of them has different ambient to live in so they really tried to make them feel as comfortable as they could.
When you arrive there you get a map so you can follow the numbers on it and you don't miss any animal.
You have a walk trough area with birds, there are a lot of benches, toilets and even bars and stores.
The must see are seals, because they are really enjoying themselves and they are swimming up and down the pool, jumping out of the water and sliding back in.

The zoo is very clean, safe. They give you the map of the zoo so it's very easy to see all the animals. Very good place for making your own piknik.

Excellent Zoo, a Must Visit
Aug 2018 • Family
One of the best zoos I’ve been to in my entire life. Perfectly organized, lots of animal species and what’s important animals are kept in very good condition. Lovely landscape design and atmosphere! Visiting this place is a must if you like nature. Easy to reach by bike from Lignano.

Nice ZOO park with many animals
Jun 2018 • Couples
Large area with lots of animals, lots of greenery. Very nice outings for animals and experience for children and adults. Excellent dining options. Pleasant spending of time if there is bad sunshine on the beach, or you want to make a trip. But it is not a whole day action. I recommend.

This zoo has everything
Jul 2018 • Couples
This zoo has everything. Free parking, extensive grounds, maintained with loving care and it is a intimate zoo, you can come close to the animals. This zoo can absorb a lot of visitors, so most of the time you can walk quietly from area to area. Because it is close to the Mediterranean, the grounds are level, so there is no problem for people with a disability, wheelchairs or strollers. Surprisingly, prices in the bars and restaurants in the grounds are reasonable, in contrast to the food and drink monopolies in most attractions, so there is no need to carry a picnic lunch with you. I have visited many zoos in Europe, but I am enchanted with Parco Zoo Punta Verde and my five point rating is earned with honours. I have added some pictures to give an impression of my day out there.

GREAT DAY
Jun 2018 • Couples
This Zoo is a conservation one. The grounds are massive. Most of the animals have ample space and all seem very happy. I was not too happy about the environment of the crocodile and rhinos but the rest of the animals seemed okay and it was not like visiting a normal zoo. It is well worth a visit and a lovely day is spent there. Not too pricey either.
