Closed 3rd January to 11th February 2022

Paradise Wildlife Park must announce that from the 3rd of January to 11th of February 2022 the Park will be closed to the public whilst we carry out some necessary groundwork and construction work. This has not been an easy decision for Paradise. However, we wish to provide the safest and best possible experience for all our guests. 

This decision will allow us to continue to improve and create beautiful habitats for our animals and our guests to enjoy. We have some exciting changes happening across our World of Dinosaurs and World of Animals and we can’t wait to show you. Although not all of the work will be completed prior to our re-opening date, these additional projects will certainly provide things to look forward to later in the season. 

Paradise looks to have the highest standards for all areas of our Park, throughout the year and with January being one of our quietest months, we have chosen this time to close to minimise the impact we have on all our guests. Our dedication to our animals and guests is our main priority and we hope that through this time we are closed we will be able to build on the foundations of the Park: Education, Conservation, Research and Wildlife. 

We are excited to bring these changes to our guests, we would like to thank all our members, supporters and visitors for their continuous support as we continue to make Paradise Wildlife Park a place of conservation and education of animals and somewhere all guests can make memories that last a lifetime. 

We look forward to seeing all our guests for this festive season and we will be excited to be welcoming you all back to the Park once we re-open. For our members to compensate for the time we are closed we will be extending memberships for six weeks – this will ensure you will have the time back to enjoy all Paradise has to offer. 

Members who pay by standing order payment will receive a gift card with their reimbursement which can be utilised until 31st December 2022. Please note, this extension does not extend to the under 2 memberships.
