Barcelona Zoo, in the Ciutadella Park is one of the city’s most popular family attractions. It is open every day of the week but opening hours vary throughout the year. The zoo used to be internationally known as the home of Snowflake, the only known albino gorilla, who died in 2003. A train runs round the park or you can hire an electric buggy if you wish. There is a small children’s zoo, aquarium and play area. They also cater for birthday parties.

    The zoo runs a very good summer school from 9 to 4pm and also can be used as a venue for birthday parties. You leave the kids for 2-3 hours and collect when the time is up – the birthday boy / girl gets to meet the dolphins – in person. There is also a great playground area for kids. Every Saturday Zoo-Club organises activities and games in the morning for children (4-11). The park is great for babies and toddlers because it is so clean and the grass is free from litter while providing well needed shade. (Tara Cemlyn-Jones)
