Paradise Wildlife Park is now closed

Paradise Wildlife Park is now closed

We are devastated by this news but must continue to stay positive and act in the best interests of our animals at this time.

Sadly, we have made the decision that as of 5pm today (Saturday 21st March 2020), Paradise Wildlife Park (Zoological Society of Hertfordshire) will be closed until further notice.

We are devastated by this news but must continue to stay positive and act in the best interests of our animals at this time.


Although Paradise Wildlife Park is an open space allowing the recommended social distancing measures to be adhered to, in light of the PM’s recent announcements and the increased self-isolation guidelines, we feel this is the best decision in the short term.

When we are in a position to re-open, there will be lots to look forward to including the re-opening of our Tumble Jungle indoor soft play and the launch of our brand new Land of the Tigers habitat!

During this particularly difficult period, if you would like to support our amazing animals, please visit;


If you are an annual member…

Our annual members are so important to us and at this time we need you more than ever to allow us to continue to provide the first class welfare, food and care for our animals.

We know that closures are equally as tough on you and your family and therefore we are extending all annual passes for an additional month (or further depending on how long we close).  You do not need to do anything, we will sort all of this for you.

If you have a standing order agreement with us, we will be in contact in due course with further benefits.


If you have an experience booked….

All animal experiences are suspended until the end of May at the moment.  If you have not heard from our team already, please do not worry as they are working hard to contact everybody to arrange vouchers for you to re-book again in the future.


If you have an event, corporate day or wedding booked….

If you have an up-coming event with us and we are forced into a situation where we must postpone (party, corporate event, wedding etc) or you decide you would rather postpone to an alternative date in the future (due to suppliers cancelling, family members not being able to travel etc), we are more than happy to change your date to another mutually agreeable date free of charge.  If you have not already been in contact with your personal event organiser, please do not hesitate to contact them.


If you have any questions or queries at all, please do not hesitate to contact us by email; We will be experiencing a high number of emails so please do allow us time to respond.

Our team will be available between 9am and 1pm via email or 8am and 5pm via our social channels.


We are so grateful for your continued support at this time and thank you for bearing with us.
