Willowbank is an amazing place to visit. It's so amazing that I now volunteer. I encourage people to fill out the volunteer form, get out there and lend a hand. The staff are awesome and the animals well of course they are and it's all great for your well being. It's helped me so much with my depression and anxiety being in an amazing place with amazing people. I'm learning all the time about nature, the animals and environment - just loving it. Thank you Willowbank for allowing me to be a Volunteer.
Love this place. Excellent for family adventures. Good range of animals and nice picnic area in the farmland area.
Absolutely loved this park! All animals are active and most you can interact with. Loved the Kea enclosure: the cheeky birds will willingly seek you (and your sunglasses) out. Kiwi house is also great - birds are easily seen and active! Petting zoo/ barn area was perfect for kids!
So in love with Willowbank! It was amazing to get up close and personal with so many beautiful animals. My personal highlight was seeing the kiwis! We also tried out the lemur experience, which was fantastic! All in all, this was a fun-filled, educational, and unique experience that I would recommend to people of all ages. :)
Loved this place! So much beautiful wildlife and the staff are all extremely friendly. Thank you!
