Zoo in strange place to see animals Apr 28, 2008
Dartmoor Zoological park,used to be known as Dartmoor wildlife park has had a new lease of life in the last year.After years of the place letting itslef get more and more run down and eventually closed down i am pleased to say that this place is now back open.

When it was known as Dartmoor wildlife park the conditions of the zoo got into a real state,and some of the animals were living in some disgraceful enclosures.

But luckily it was saved from complete closure and some if not most of the animals from being put down by a man called Ben Mee.He bought the zoo and started to do a massive revamp which the place was in serious need of.There was also a tv programme that followed it all,and they had some nightmares where a wolf escaped and the jaguar escaped into the tigers cage,but finally they got the zoo back to where they needed it,and after recently visiting it i can say they have done well,with more work still going on credit should go to Ben Mee on turning this zoo around.

I can recomend this place as it is set in a very interesting wooded area.

Well i dont even know where to begin with Woodlands adventure park.While ive heard from people travelling around here that they think woodlands looks very childish i can assure that it has alot to offer for all ages.

Yes it does have a big indoors fun areas with slides,swings,nets,crashmats etc etc but it does have other brilliant attractions like waterslides on which you down in dingys(however you will still get wet).They also have the Toboggan run which is great as you control the speed however if you are stuck behind someone trigger happy on the break as it wont be half as fun.

There are plenty of places to get food and use the toilet on the grounds and there is also a small amount of animals being kept here like Pigs and Llamas.I can highly recommend this place for a fun day out.
