Cotswold Wildlife Park Gardens

With so many animals to see at the Cotswold Wildlife Park, don't forget to take a look at the beautiful gardens!

The Cotswold Park has become well known for its exotic planting, particularly in the favourable microclimate of the Walled Garden where Bananas and Cannas are a speciality.

From ancient Oaks to vibrant exotic planting, from traditional borders to contemporary prairie style schemes, the gardens at the Park are quite special and are rapidly becoming known by garden lovers.

Many of the animal exhibits are complemented by the Cotswold Wildlife Park's naturalistic style of planting, imitating where possible the animal’s own habitat. For example, you can view the endangered Amur Leopards through and within a forest setting, whilst the Meerkats inhabit an arid environment.
