Reopening of the Paris Zoological Park avenue Daumesnil 75012 Paris fr

After undergoing renovations since 2011, the Parc zoologique de Paris (Paris Zoological Park) reopened its doors on April 12, 2014.

The park’s completely redesigned new spaces are dedicated to biodiversity and present animals in their natural ecosystems.

The natural environments of five geographic areas are recreated in vast enclosures: from the Patagonia (pumas and penguins) to the Sahel, including Europe (wolfs of Iberia, northern bobcat and vultures), the Amazonia (primates, white face sakis (Phitecia pithecia), tamarinds and marmosets) and Madagascar (lemurs, the fossa, radiated tortoise, grey face lovebird). In total, more than a thousand animals of 179 different species are present, including endangered species.

The biggest change to the park is the way that visitors can observe the animals: rather than being simply presented, the visitor has to seek out the animals in their natural habitat, creating a new experience along an immersive path that crosses these 5 biozones.


Buy your tickets online now and be among the first to visit the park in the spring! Prices range from €14 to 22€ (about $20 CAD + fees according to the reservation centre). Admission is free for children under 3.

The Paris Zoological Park is open all year:

  • From mid-October to mid-March, 10 am to 5 pm
  • From mid-March to mid-October, 10 am to 6 pm during the week and 9:30 am to 7:30 pm on weekends, public holidays and school holidays.
