Back in 1978, the park was originally farmland. Later, this quaint farm was converted into a small wildlife park and opened to the public. By 1981, the Greenleaf restaurant was built on site.
This perfect family outing spot has something unique for everyone. Ride a mini-car with your kids or take a ride on the toboggan (for kids over 130cm). Kids will also certainly love the pony rides on offer, as well as face painting and animal feeding. Take your kids on the dodgem cars, but note that kids must be over 130cm to ride unaccompanied and over 100cm to ride with a companion.
There is also a jumping castle, pirate ship ride, and paddle boats. For little kids, there is also a children’s playground with shade cover. There are also picnic tables located right next to the playground where mum and dad can relax as they watch their kids at play.
You are welcome to bring your own food and enjoy a picnic here at the park. The venue also offers private party and birthday party packages.
