The 5 of us were lucky enough to be asked to visit and review Paradise Wildlife Park in Hertfordshire recently.
This is my take on our fun day out…
Those of you who know me know that we have 3 children, 7, 2 and 1.
Due to the 4.5 year age gap between Fin and Indi, days out that involve animals are a great option for us.
They all get something out of the day, and there’s usually some feeding action and a gift shop which always pleases!
Also, wildlife parks, farms and zoos seem a bit more chilled out than other types of park, as it usually involves less interaction with other humans, ha!
Paradise Wildlife Park Have A Huge Amount Of Attractions
We had no idea what the park was going to be like, and upon entering we were blown away by the attention to detail on the play areas.
The animal enclosures were well thought out from the perspective of getting the best views of the animals.
We also all loved the Jurrasic Park theme tunes playing in the background of the World of Dinos.
We visited the park on a Sunday and it was a really nice busy-ness with lots of friendly people milling around.
The staff were all really happy and helpful which really added to the vibe.

Fin’s (7yo) favourite parts of day were the sand pit where you can dig up a dino skeleton, the dinosaur train, the real fire engines and the monkey bars!
Indi (2yo) really enjoyed the big slide, the little monkeys, and the soft play.
Beau (1yo) loved the splash park, despite it being ice-cold, and the ice cream!
Beau was unfortunate enough to be stung by a wasp on his eye during our day out.
With some swift ice-pack action by the very helpful medical staff, he was not in too much pain for long, despite his eye closing more and more as the day went on!
Poor babe. Still enjoyed himself, as you can see in these pictures!
My favourite part of the day was watching the lion feeding, the camel smiling at me, the snakes, and the sloth (which I couldn’t take a photo of as it was hiding!)
Another highlight for me (and a lot of other people who flocked over) was when the massive, amazing male white lion was roaring in a super-loud fashion.
Andy enjoyed the hot dog, the abundance of places to buy cups of tea and the tigers.
What We Really Thought About Paradise Wildlife Park
Overall, we had the best day out we’ve all had in a long time.
Fin has been very hard to please over the summer holidays, and has been very emotional, but this day out really got him smiling once again.
As soon as we stepped into the park, he saw the real fire engine, ran over to it, got in and started role-playing with Indi.
All 3 children just loved exploring everything, and couldn’t wait to experience what was coming next.
We found it hard to drag them out of the play areas at first, as they were so well put together.
The sheer variety of attractions is great, there really is something for all ages and interests
