On weekends, clowns and heroes of their favorite cartoons perform on the territory of the park, and in specially equipped playgrounds, children have fun on swings and carousels.
The zoo in Yerevan encourages children's creativity in every possible way - original sculptures are made by children from a wide variety of materials at hand.
