Animal Park Collection

Our Animal Park is set in 15 acres of the Southwick Country Park. Over the past nine years we have created a haven for wildlife and provide home to a large number of animals of all varieties. If you’d like to make a friend for life then remember to buy some food at the Park Hut when you pay! As well as providing a great visitors attraction for people of all ages, our park does an excellent job at achieving our charities aim... to provide jobs for vulnerable adults.


Our service users assist our staff in making sure the animals are cared for and carry out important park management. They absolutely love their time with us and the interaction they get with our animals and the visitors that come to our park.


We have a wide range of animals who make the Hope Nature Centre their home, if you'd like to take a look at them prior to your visit, you can always check out our gallery


Our park is home to lots of wildlife and we've done lots over the past few years to encourage this. Your might get to see fantastic Mr Fox near our woodland area, or even spot the vividly colourful green woodpeckers. Keep your eyes peeled... we’d love to know what you saw.



We're very lucky to have a Land Train taking our visitors around the park to see the many attractions we have. Make sure you check in at the Park Hut to find out when the next trip is. At 50p per passenger it's a great way to get around the park particularly for those visitors that have difficulties walking the whole way.


There is a wooded area which is home to some lovely fairy folk [currently under construction!] and we are also in the process of installing a storytime area where we hope to run storytime sessions during the summer months.


Scattered around the park are various play areas to keep the young ones amused whilst parents can take a rest on one of the benches and enjoy the beautiful scenery.


We also plan to update the play equipment and include some special equipment for children with disabilities making us one of the only playgrounds in Wiltshire that caters for this group.
