Hertfordshire Paradise Wildlife Park Zoo has fully reopened its attractions after remaining coronavirus restrictions were lifted.
All accessible park areas in White Stubbs Lane, Broxbourne, are now open to the public, including PWP’s Tumble Jungle and Paradise Lagoon soft play.
There are also new animals coming to Paradise, with porcupines Nancy and Ellie now settled in the park, and the return of Animal Talks and Free Flying Bird Displays, every day.
Following the rule changes on Monday, July 19, Paradise officials say they can “also start to feel a little more comfortable about our future.”
A statement from PWP said: “We are delighted to welcome all of our wonderful supporters and visitors to Paradise at full capacity and look forward to a brighter future for our zoo and our animals.”
Among the changes at the zoo, Paradise can finally reopen its new and improved indoor soft play, Tumble Jungle.
“Over the past 18 months we have worked to improve your experience at Paradise Wildlife Park and we know how much our visitors love our Tumble Jungle,” a zoo spokesperson said.
There’s also a new Tumble Jungle Cafe where you can enjoy hot and cold food and drinks while the kids enjoy their new play area.
“We hope you love our revamped soft play and let the kids go wild to catch up,” a Paradise spokesperson said.
Paradise Lagoon has also reopened. The spokesperson said: “We were delighted to open our paddling pool this week and as we expect beautiful weather you can cool off in our very own Paradise Lagoon.
“While the lagoon has been closed, we have also been working on improving the area for your enjoyment when it opens.
“Just be sure to bring towels, a change of clothes, and plenty of sunscreen!”
Among the latest additions to Paradise Wildlife Park, you can now visit Chinese crocodile lizards in the Angkor temple, goats and pigs in the barnyard, and porcupines, which sit alongside the camels.
The park’s wonderful animal talks are also back.
The Free Flying Bird Displays will take place daily from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Face coverings will not be a legal requirement, although zoo managers recommend wearing one when busy indoors.
Summer Evenings in Paradise will also start from July 30 every Friday and Saturday in August.
The new after-hours event will feature a variety of entertainment across the park, with African drummers, acoustic sets, stilt walkers, face painting and fun photo opportunities to create lasting memories.
Thanking the supporters, the Paradise spokesperson added: “We can’t thank you enough for your endless patience and understanding over the past 18 months.
“It was really the most difficult period we had to face.
“However, we look forward to seeing you this summer to create more amazing memories in Paradise.”
