Sainte-Croix Animal Park : Visit this unique park to get close to Nature
With over 328,000 visitors annually, the Parc Animalier de Sainte-Croix at Rhodes in Moselle has become over 38 years a model in France and Europe in its presentation of European animals and endangered species from all over the world. Set in 120 hectares of leafy countryside, 3 discovery trails take visitors to encounter 1,500 animals of more than 100 species living in semi-captivity.
Since 2010, the Animal Park has been offering unique experiences : overnight stays in a tree house or a lodge facing the deer park or the wolf enclosure...
A Nature school
Gérald and Liliane Singer, farmers originally from the Sarrebourg area and passionate about nature, took a wild gamble in 1980 by devoting their land to deer watching and the building of a petting farm so young local children could get close to domestic animals, sometimes for the first time. A fervent admirer of the King of the Forest, Gérald brought the first stags from Chambord to the ‘Great Plain’ of Sainte-Croix, his Garden of Eden.
Today, 25,000 schoolchildren a year come to Sainte-Croix to discover European wildlife, domestic animals and endangered species from around the world.
Parc Animalier de Sainte-Croix and biodiversity
In 2019, next stop the New World
In 2019, the Parc Animalier de Sainte-Croix set its sights on North America, the « New World » ! This new visitor zone of 8.5 hectares of wild plains and woodland is home to different North American species living together : American bison, black bears, prairie dogs and coyotes (the first in France!).
