A theme zoo park patterned after Subic's Zoobic, Paradizoo is a fun way for kids and adults alike to get friendly with animals. For a fee, kids can get pony rides and feed some of the farm animals. The Infinity Pool of Positivism, which looks over the entire farm and the sunken flower garden, is a good focal point for adults who want to relax and meditate in the cool air.
