The Bristol Zoo Project is the new name for the Wild Place Project

Bristol Zoo Gardens closed on 3 September 2022 after 186 years in Clifton. However, the work continued at the Wild Place Project. Run by the Bristol Zoological Society. The brand new name, Bristol Zoo Project, was announced on 21 July 2023. 

Bristol Zoo Project is a fun family attraction where you can meet amazing animals and wildlife from across the world. Including bears, giraffes, cheetahs, lemurs and more. There's also plenty of opportunity for outdoor adventures with 50 acres of woodland, gardens and meadows to explore. Plus, conservation information and projects across the site.

Individual and family tickets can be purchased online or on the day, and the park offers free parking.

Brisol Zoo Project Events

There are special events throughout the year, especially at Halloween, Christmas, Easter and the school holidays. You can also be a zookeeper for the day, walk the bear wood or go to one of the fascinating animal talks.
