I had the opportunity to go to this animal park with my work recently and I would definitely like to go again. The park is based about 20 mins away from the main lakes so handy for that but quite a trek if you are coming from anywhere else. The park opened in 1994 and it set in 17 acres it is not the biggest zoo you will ever visit but it certainly packs a lot in. The park includes: Australian Ibis Black Swan Emu Red Kangaroo River Sand Wallaby Swamp Wallaby Western Grey Kangaroo White Throated Wallaby Babirusa Indonesian Otter Siamang Sumatran Tiger White Handed Gibbon Aloatran ...

We are lucky enough to live only a few miles away from the South Lakes Wild Animal park (how many people do you know that get to see giraffes and rhinos at the side of the road on their way to the supermarket?!!), which is situated just outside Dalton-in-Furness, between Ulverston and Barrow-in-Furness. As it's not in the central Lake District or on any of the usual tourist routes I think a lot of people overlook it in favour of the more well-known/central attractions, despite being well sign-posted, practically from the motorway. This is a real shame as it makes a fantastic day out for all ages. It is also more affordable as they often have special offers on ... Read the complete review

South Lakes Wild Animal Park is situated in Cumbria and was somewhere we had be recommended to visit on a recent trip to the lakes and it was certainly worth the visit and exceed our expectations of a zoo trip. Getting there ************* The Animal Park is situated at the southern tip of the Lake District in the North West of England on the A590 trunk road. If you take Junction 36 from the M6 and follow signs for Barrow in Furness, until the brown Elephant Tourist Signs take over. We had done a route map with the AA and this in combination with the brown signs got us there with no problems. You can catch a train to Dalton-in-Furness and catch a cab ... Read the complete review

We recently visited the South Lakes Wild Animal Park on the way home from a holiday in the Lake District. We were blessed with an excellent days weather and had an excellent time there. This park seems far more conservation minded than other places that we have been to. Being a registered charity you are also able to sign for GiftAid on entry. Admission:- The price for an adult is £11.50, with children and OAP's being £8. An annual pass is available at £21.50 which enables you to enter for £1.50 as many times in one year as you like.

Well, the weather has turned cool so in an attempt to recapture the warmth of the previous weekend I decided to write about our recent trip to South Lakes Wild Animal Park. ** What it is ** As the name suggests, it is a Wild Animal Park, although it does have a bit of a difference from the usual animal parks and zoos that I have visited in that many of the animals are roaming around freely or with minimal walls and fencing (although obviously dangerous animals are well contained!) **Arriving at the park ** On the day that we visited there was some sort of diversion around the park and it was a little bit tricky to gain access ...
