The Welsh Mountain Zoo, which is one of the largest and most popular attractions in North Wales has been granted fresh planning permission that will see the tourist attraction replace and revamp its media and education facilities. The works are set to cost up to £80,000 and will get underway in February 2016, with the aim to have the project completed by Easter. The media centre, which adjoins the zoo’s main facility as well as part of the zoo’s education building, has been in its current place for nearly 60 years. The new plans for the rejuvenated facility is set to see the facility cater for groups of visitors of up to 50 to visit at any one time. A zoo spokesman was quoted as saying: “The new education facilities will enable us to provide a better experience for school groups and a more modern environment to learn in. “We hope that more school groups will want to visit and try out our new facilities.” So if you are planning to stay at any of our Wales holiday parks next year then be sure to pay a visit to the wonderful attraction that is The Welsh Mountain Zoo, for a fun family day out!
