Tirana Zoo was established in 1966. It is the only zoo in the country, and is administered by Tirana Municipality. It is located in Tirana's Green Park, next to the botanical gardens. Together with Grand Park and the Lake these comprise the green crown of the city. On average, three hundred people visit the zoo every week. The park was closed for some time for restoration work and has recently been reopened. The zoo hosts only a few animals, but nevertheless it’s still worth visiting and children can enjoy a ride on a pedal car. It’s busier at the weekend, when most of the visitors are children. Nevertheless, a project for revitalizing the zoo has been drawn up in the Municipality and is expected to see the light soon.
