    Quite a small park with little museum, but good for younger kids. There were activities for the kids but didn't get time to investigate. They may have been in French only.

    2 / 5 Reviews posted by Relax17746768026 (Nieuw-Vennep, The Netherlands) on 11/07/2020

    Some goats, deer, cows and 2 wolves. High price for entry and information mainly French. Unfortunately not worth it.
