New additions to the park...

Say hello to ‘Solo’ our latest arrival! Solo, short for Han Solo, is one of our three brand new Capybara which have taken up residence here at the park.

You can find Solo, and his girlfriends, Sprout & Smudge, in our Brand New South American exhibit down near the river.

Officially, Northumberland’s NEWEST Zoo!

Originally starting off with just 4 Chickens and a couple of Donkeys, we are proud to have evolved into Northumberland’s newest Zoo as we were granted a Zoo Licence in June 2015 after lots of hard work! We have BIG plans for Eshottheugh Animal Park in the not too distant future. Watch this space for any news or updates regarding our collection.

Support us by coming to see us as we grow by purchasing Annual Passes to the animal park, click here for more details.

If you would like to get involved or help with our future developments, why not Volunteer or Adopt an Animal?

Already, we have had exciting developments in 2016! In January, we welcomed two Cape Porcupines to share their space with our meerkats in our recently renovated large Meerkat enclosure.

We are also proud to say that we have completely renovated our indoor Critterland, with a few new species added - including the adorable Harvest Mouse!

We are always working on improving and developing our zoo, so we thank you for your continued support.

There are lots of things to see and do at the Animal Park, why not check out our Animals section to see what new Fur & Feathered things you will find…

NEW for 2016!
