Children LOVE watching the animals at Marwell, or riding on the train - but every parent knows that sometimes children need to run!
That's why we have 5 adventure playgrounds at Marwell, so the children can swing like lemurs, climb like monkeys, run like cheetahs and slide like penguins.
Of course parents must play a supervisory role - but can sit like hippos if they wish.
The playgrounds are sensibly placed around the zoo, and during busier times of the year it is always possible to grab a cup of tea or coffee nearby - to drink while you watch.
Marwell itself is very accommodating, the staff are always friendly and happy to help, the changing facilities are very good. The children loved the big play parks, doing the Easter egg hunt and meeting the Easter bunny.KIDS, Shepherds Down, 30th April 2015
