Battersea Park Children’s Zoo

When the much-loved zoo, formerly run by Wandsworth Council, was threatened with closure in 2003, the Heap family stepped in and saved it. Carol, Roger and Ed Heap have a passion for animals and valuable experience of running two other wildlife parks – the Chestnut Centre Conservation and Wildlife Park in Derbyshire and the New Forest Wildlife Park in Hampshire.Taking over Battersea Park Children’s Zoo gave them a chance to create a zoo exactly the way they wanted it – turning it into an opportunity for youngsters to enjoy, respect and learn about the animals with whom we share our planet.Children can have fun and test their skills as they climb, balance, swing and build in our well equipped interactive play area.

The Café

The Lemon Tree Cafe at Battersea serves hot and cold drinks, light snacks and sandwiches.Encircled by the zoo’s bird aviaries, whilst enjoying a speciality coffee or an ice cream be sure to listen out for a unique greeting from the African Grey Parrots!

Plenty of seating available inside and outside the cafe with more picnic tables located throughout the zoo in various green and decked areas. The Cafe is open from spring to autumn. Opening hours are 10.00am until half an hour before the zoo closes. At all times snacks and drinks are available to purchase from the zoo shop or from the vending machines located near the play area.

The Shop

The Battersea Zoo shop stocks a wide selection of exciting wildlife themed gifts, books, Battersea Zoo souvenirs and plenty of pocket money priced items.
