The park is known for its animal park where tours are conducted (although not required), tours typically take two hours and give children the opportunity to feed, pet and interact with the animals. Free public tours are led by the Park Ranger Service every Wednesday starting at 1.30pm. The tours are strictly limited to the first 50 people on the day. Tours begin at the deer pen. The park is referenced in the Squeeze song "Patchouli" from the album, The Knowledge.
