Woodside Wildlife Park

Open daily | 10am-5pm. (Winter 4pm)

Woodside is a small wildlife park located in Newball, near Lincoln. 

Please note that we can only open outdoor spaces with social distancing in place, so unfortunately our tropical houses will remain closed, and we are unable to carry out any of our displays or talks. 

But don’t worry! We still have many animals outside, including big cats, white wolves, penguins, red pandas and many more, including a brand new Meerkat & Tortoise enclosure for 2021! 

Daily Animal Displays

Daily displays at Woodside Wildlife Park are a great opportunity to learn all about the rare and fascinating species that live at Woodside, including birds of prey, Humboldt penguins, Hudson Bay Wolves, wild cats and reptiles. Their team of friendly, experienced keepers provide exciting feeding demonstrations, interactive handling sessions and fantastic animal shows on the hour, every day. 

Play Areas

The outdoor play area features climbing frames, a giant swing, slides, monkey bars and much more. There is also an indoor sand play next to the Tropical seating area. Relax and enjoy a cup of coffee and a bite to eat while you watch over the little ones exploring and having fun.
