Zoo and Wildlife Parks in Carlisle
If you are looking for great days out, from petting zoos, wildlife areas, nature reserves, aquariums, animals, zoos, animal sanctuaries or country parks, and you are in the Carlisle region, then you are in best place.
Many Carlisle zoos and parks offer exciting and educational activities and special events. Visiting a zoo helps children understand the importance of taking care of the environment as it has a significant impact on the lives and welfare of animals. Zoos also teach families about the importance of conservSation and animal care.
Kingstown Wildlife Pond is a small freshwater haven for wildlife, secluded from the Kingstown Industrial Estate and Lowry Hill Road. At the edges of the Pond you will find many interesting plants, offering a variety of colour throughout the growing season. This underwater world is a breeding ground for frogs, toads and newts, and a year round home for water scorpions, pond snails and of course the carnivorous great diving beetles.

Families, schools, groups and birthday parties can all ‘Meet the Animals’, take a stroll along the farm’s nature trail or just relax in our Curly Tails Cafe, open daily serving delicious hot and cold home-cooked food.
