Alpaca experience - gift vouchers

Alpaca gift vouchers 

Looking for that unique gift? We have it! Buy one of these Alpaca experience gift vouchers for a loved one and you won't be disappointed! 

Alpaca experience 

After meeting at the entrance to the children's zoo we'll start off with a brief talk about our alpaca's and introduce you to our three boys, Jim, Topaz and Mally. We'll then demonstrate how to catch the alpaca and take them on a walk around the park with opportunities for photographs!

We estimate that the experience will take about an hour.

Booking 

Each walk will have two alpaca that can be booked for just £20 each! The alpaca can be booked for either one adult or one adult and one child (8+)!

We appreciate that you may want to bring someone with you to take photographs so we're happy for one person per booking to come along with us – they must be an adult and will not be allowed to walk the alpaca. 

Gift vouchers 

When you buy these vouchers it will display a date and time. Please ignore these and go ahead with the booking. When you receive the voucher you'll also be sent contact details for our rangers who you can liaise with and organise your special trip at a time and date that's suitable for you or the person your gifting it too!!

Sorry..  

Alpaca don't like dogs so please don't bring your dog with you! Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear suitable footwear as paths may be uneven or muddy.

Animal adoption

Will you help us by adopting one of our animals?

Adopting an animal for a year will get you a super adoption welcome pack full of all the information you need to know about the animal you've chosen to adopt. You'll also get a key ring, newsletter, annual adopters’ evening certificate and birthday card.

Every adoption helps us buy things for the zoo that otherwise we'd be unable to afford. Things like the alpaca and their shelter, Herdwick sheep, ornamental waterfowl, squirrel sheds and incubator, rugs and harness for the donkeys, a set of ornamental entrance gates, our lovebird aviary, feed troughs and veterinary scales. The list could go on! 

So you can see how much we rely on your continued help and generosity.

The animals available for adoption are: Lenny & Charlie the donkey’s, our herd of African Pygmy Goats, the Peacocks, our Shetland Ponies – Lotty and Pebbles, our collection of Rabbits, the ferrets and our Miniature Pot Bellied Pigs. Individual animals are not up for adoption as sometimes animals move home or are changed for breeding purposes.

How much will it cost me?

The cost for one year’s animal adoption is £15. Red Squirrels cost £20 and the adoption is more suitable for adults.

What do I get?

The adoption pack will include;

  • An adoption pack containing animal fact pack, certificate, gift and picture of your animals 
  • Bi-annual newsletter which will be sent out in April and October.
  • Celebration card from the chosen animal on the adopters birthday (or other special date)
  • Special Adoption evening where you can chat with the keepers about the animal or bird you have adopted.
  • Your name on our adoption board

This scheme is for individuals. Group adoptions are available – please contact us for more details on erowlands1@warrington.gov.uk

Children's parties at the zoo

Book a unique children's party for your little one - there's two options to choose from:

  • Animal hour party - This is suitable for all ages with accomodation of up to 15 children per booking. There's lots to see and do during our animal hour and your party will make some new best friends as they feed the birds, groom the donkeys and say hi to a whole range of other animals including Thumper the rabbit and Buddy the ferret. Duration - 1 hour.
  • Zoo keeper party - This is suitable for ages 5 and above (including teenagers) with accomodation of up to 15 children per booking. The party will get stuck in straight away as they help to clear the stables before meeting the donkeys, goats and other animals. For a unique 'day in the life' experience you won't find anything better! We offer a themed 'donkey and pony party' with this package - if this is something your child would love then let us know in the 'comments or special instructions' part of this booking. Duration - 1.5 hours

When you've made your booking we'll contact you directly to confirm details and provide you with food selections.
