Paradise Wildlife Park in Hertfordshire will reopen on April 12


A popular Hertfordshire zoo has confirmed it will reopen to the public on April 12 in line with the government’s roadmap to come out of the lockdown.

Broxbourne’s Paradise Wildlife Park says it ‘can’t wait’ to open its doors to visitors after being forced to close again during England’s third coronavirus lockdown.

Under the government’s roadmap to get out of lockdown, outdoor attractions and settings such as zoos are allowed to reopen from April 12.

Several security measures are in place at Paradise Wildlife Park, including a one-way system as well as additional disinfection stations.

There is a card payment system and the park says it won’t accept cash.

Take-out will be available in outdoor seating areas, while masks must also be worn in all indoor areas.

There will also be a maximum number of visitors on site per day to avoid massive crowds, while a reservation system is in place to ensure a staggered entry of visitors into the park evenly throughout the day.

A statement from the wildlife park said: “Paradise Wildlife Park is looking forward to reopening its doors to the public! Be sure to visit the Tiger Country Habitat, which just opened in October 2020.

“The world of dinosaurs is also back if you’re feeling adventurous, along with over 800 animals to enjoy at Paradise Wildlife Park.”

He also warned people to expect changes in the park in the coming months, with changes to Jaguar habitat and Sun Bear Heights habitat.

The statement added: “While outside the zoo life seemed to have slowed down, the same cannot be said for inside the zoo. Behind closed doors, construction crews, gardening crews, construction workers have all been busy bees to get the latest park developments in order.

“There have been major changes to the jaguar’s habitat, and the new habitat in Sun Bear Heights has come a long way since the initial announcement. So be aware that as you walk through the park over the next few months, changes may occur.

“Both habitats should open in the summer if all goes as planned and there are no significant disturbances along the way. Paradise Wildlife Park truly appreciates your patience and understanding over the past year and the way you have coped with constant change.
