Lecocq Zoo



With its area of more than 50 hectares, this piece of land is an animal conservation center and native species preservation centre. The forested surroundings, together with a proper building structure, allows an excellent environment of recreation in the open air.  20 minutes far from the centre of Montevideo, Lecocq Park is becoming one of the Centres of most touristic attraction of the town. Following the steps of the governor, Mr Francisco Lecocq (lover of arboriculture), the Council (present propietor of the Park) and private businesses have joined human, material and economic resources in order to create a potential centre to make people aware of nature and teach them about ecological matters.    It is a recreational and educational option, of mental invigoration, and a counter proposal to the stressful lifestyle of the rpesent. To achieve this aims, the building has dinig-room, kitchen, conventions' hall, cottages and a recreational area with games.  Nowadays, it has service for each visitor, where a team of experts and technicians carry out guided walks, on foot or riding horses, where they show you the Park's flora and fauna. There are rides in a little train for kids, visiting the zoo and doing recreational activities of nature awareness.  In all these walks we can observe the animals of our fauna practically free, where they breed and are protected while enjoying an unique space in Monteviedo.   Source: Ministry of Tourism and Sports of Uruguay
