Dublin Zoo’s New All-Weather Play Forest

Dublin Zoo has officially opened its brand new family attraction, the children’s Play Forest, which is guaranteed to have your children climbing, swinging and sliding! The new Play Forest is completely sheltered so it can be enjoyed in any weather and is yet another reason to visit Ireland’s most popular family visitor attraction.

Children are certain to enjoy the large slide, palm trees, sand, wooden huts and rope bridge and of course the wooden tiger and monkey. Suitable for children aged from 4 to 12 years old, the Play Forest can be found next to the orang utan habitat, which is located between the Asian Forests and the Fringes of the Artic.
