THE ANIMAL PARK
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 trainees 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’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.
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.
As we do not meet the requirements for this, we are temporarily re-homing the emus, owls, tortoise and parrots until such time that we can make the necessary adaptations to meet the stringent requirements for a zoo licence.
