Where to go for a picnic?

There are picnic areas of various sizes on the grounds of the zoo, which can be used and rented for various events. You can find the locations of the picnic grounds on the zoo map. All pitches have six sets of wooden picnic tables, unfortunately we do not have shelters or tents.
