Paradise Park is a visitor attraction in Cornwall, which aims to provide good facilities and access for all. We do our best to make the Park available for everyone to enjoy and learn about the wildlife to be seen here, and have fun in our ‘JungleBarn’ indoor play centre. The Park is set around the grounds of a Victorian walled garden, with the vast majority of areas are wheelchair and pushchair friendly. Some paths are tarmac, most are gravel and there is grass on the picnic lawn and in the Fun Farm. The shop, café and entrance kiosk are all on level ground, the gardens have a natural slope. The JungleBarn indoor play centre has good accessibility, and can be a perfect place for less abled children.

Local directions

Directions: The park is well signposted from anywhere in Hayle and the surrounding by-pass. Just follow the brown tourist information signs. To get to Hayle just head down the A30, then turn off at the Hayle / St Ives roundabout. In summer it is best to keep on the Hayle by-pass and approach the town from the south. There are plenty of ways to get here by bus, ask for the Foundry Square stop, or St Michaels Hospital. There is also a rail link to Hayle but the services tend to be infrequent. Both bus and train stops are a short walk up Foundry Hill to the Park. Times of buses and trains vary between summer and winter, and visitors are advised to check for more details. Please see below the map for some contact details. Free carpark: We have free on site parking and during busy times, we have an adjacent field which is opened up for visitor park, with just a short walk to the entrance.
