Beale Wildlife Park is an outdoor wildlife park set within 30 acres of grounds. We want to make sure you have a fun and memorable visit and would recommend that you read the information below.
2021 is going to be a fun-packed year!
It’s going to be a fantastic year – there is so much more to do and see at the Park.
- The bouncing pillow is one way to let our younger visitors let off steam. Located on the Maple Walk is it is ideal location to enjoy a cup of coffee or ice-cream whilst others are bouncing away.
- Additional catering outlets. Our stunning Pavilion is now a Cafe with a wide range of fresh food and hot drinks. When we first open in April, it will be takeaway service only but as lockdown eases, you will be able to enjoy refreshments in the Pavilion overlooking the gardens…. A perfect way to relax.
- Finn is our new Carpathian Lynx. He is simply stunning (well – we would say that…). He arrived last November and we are hoping to find him a mate soon.
- Scottish wildcats are now one of Britain’s rarest mammals due to multiple threats. As part of their conservation programme, we have three siblings here. It is a great opportunity to see one of these rare animals.
- The West African Dwarf Crocodile is the world’s smallest crocodile, growing up to 1.8 metres (5.9 feet). Following a poll on Facebook, we have named ours ‘Neville’. He is a heavily armoured crocodile, which is dark in colour on the back and sides with a yellowish belly featuring many black patches. Dwarf crocodiles are a little-known species, unlike their more studied relatives – come and discover more.
- Hector, Honey, Willow, Sweet Pea, Beauty and Silver are our new herd of Shetland Ponies. You will find them near the railway station and they are full of fun and character. They are also part of our animal experiences.
