Manor House Wildlife Park – Anna’s Welsh Zoo
Manor House Wildlife Park was taken over by Anna Ryder Richardson and husband Colin MacDougall in the Spring of 2008. Since then there have been major, conservation-led changes at Manor Park. The park is working on a major renovation project to bring it from a seriously dilapidated outdated animal park to a world class animal facility.
