The animal park which opened in 1997 is located in the territory of the former Elistvere manor park. Native wild animals – foxes, roe deer, a bear, lynxes, elks, wild boars, buffalos – are settled in the conditions similar to those they experience in the nature. Those interested may also visit the small rodents’ centre. The 2 km study trail, which can be completed both in a wheelchair and with a stroller, introduces various plant species with the help of information signs. A boardwalk will take visitors to a 350-metre-high viewing platform by Lake Elistvere where one can admire the lake’s rich bird kingdom. Next to the animal park, you will find a recreation place with swings where you can enjoy the nature and the closeness of animals with your friends, family, or colleagues.
