Adventurers’ Learning Centre

Adventurers can jump on board to cross crocodile creek, tunnel through meerkat mound or slither to snake island at the zoo’s play area, the Adventurers’ Learning Centre. 

This exciting new £430,000 family visitor attraction replaces the old playground. £215,000 was provided through Belfast City Council's Investment Programme for the city. The project was also part funded by the European Regional Development Fund, under the European Sustainable Competitiveness Programme for Northern Ireland, and administered by Tourism NI. Tourism NI is the trading name of the Northern Ireland Tourist Board.
