Family zoo day - come and join us!

Following the success of last year’s family day at Paignton Zoo we will be holding another one on Saturday 1 October. Last year just over 130 of you came along and gave us lots of valuable feedback about our services. This feedback has helped us to tailor our community pledges and service standards to meet your specific needs.

We would like to talk to you between 10.30am and 12pm to find out if there are any areas you would like us to improve on this year. During this time entertainment for children aged 2 to 11 years will be provided at the education centre by Teign Housing and Paignton Zoo staff. An activity will also be provided for young people aged 12 - 17. As a thank you for your time, you will then have the rest of the day to explore the zoo at your leisure.
