Lembang Park and Zoo

Lembang Park and Zoo

At the end of 2019, Lembang has a new attraction opened: Lembang Park and Zoo. 

When we visited the park, it was just opened for few days and half of it was still under construction. As we studied the map, we realized that even when it's fully completed, it will only be a small zoo with few exotic animals.

Having said that, we, at the ExploreSunda.com, believe it is still worth a visit. Are you wondering why? Let's continue reading then..

What's Inside Lembang Park and Zoo?

As its name implies, it is a combination of a park and a zoo. The first thing we noticed was each building in this park was beautifully painted. It reminded us of the old houses in European villages.

As soon as we entered the park, a beautiful landscape was upon us: a small man-made pond with a tiny island in the middle. The island would become a place for outbound and people could rent pedal boats to circle the pond. A bit further there would be a small water park where children could slide and play water. They were still under construction, what's available presently was the horse ride circling the pond.

Walking further down the path, we saw several wind mills on top of a food court. They were not the real wind mills though, they were snack kiosks. We had to take a couple flight of stairs to reach them. They were in the same area with a small pet shop and a cat cafe. Well, it's more like an indoor playground to interact with provided cats, while the cafe was an outdoor area with several umbrellas and one wall covered with cats painting. But, there was an additional charge of Rp. 30,000/hour to enter the cat cafe a.k.a cat playground.

Let's keep walking down, shall we? There was a fort-like building, which would be used for reptiles. It was still closed when we were there, but some of the habitats surrounding it had been occupied. There were a small crocodile, several tortoises, and a green monitor lizard.

There was a fork in front of this reptile fort, going to the right and slightly up would take you to a children playground called Storyland with a carousel and a big blown up bouncy castle and slides. Going to the left you would enter the zoo.

As I mentioned before, the zoo was not completely ready, some of the habitats were still under construction, such as the tiger habitat inside the food court. Many of the animals were only one of each kind. For example, one crocodile, one small deer, one binturong a.k.a. bearcat, one sun bear, and one long-tailed kangaroo.

In my opinion, the highlights of Lembang zoo were the two aviaries. The larger one contained many exotic birds such as several types of cockatoos, macaw, and mandarin ducks. We could ask the staff to put them on our arm or shoulder and took pictures with them. There was a raised platform circling the aviary, the birds like to perch on the railing, hence, we could see the birds up close on the railing as well as watched them fly around in the aviary.

The smaller aviary contained smaller birds such as the family of starling, myna and love birds. We could ask the staff for some sunflower seeds, corn or crickets to feed these birds. Just open up your palm and the birds would start coming :)

Birds were not the only animal we could feed in Lembang zoo. We could feed vegetables to the family of sheep and ostrich. Although, the ostrich were a bit aggressive.

If you are tired roaming Lembang Park and Zoo, lookout for an open air car. It will take you from the corner of the park to the parking lot for free. Often the passengers ask the driver whereabout in the park, hence, it feels like a guided tour around the park.

Although it is fun to explore Lembang Park and Zoo, it is much smaller and less exotic than the more established zoo such as Taman Safari Indonesia at Cisarua, Bogor, Ragunan Zoo in Jakarta and Batu Secret Zoo in Malang. Would you check them out too?
