The Jungle Experience at Manor Heath Park in Halifax

Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Services, Councillor Jenny Lynn, said: “The Jungle Experience in Manor Heath Park is a popular attraction which has unfortunately been closed since the start of the Covid pandemic.

"Work has continued throughout this time to maintain the site and care for the plants and animals that call the greenhouse home.

“More recently, work has been underway to enable the reopening of the attraction.

"Repairs are currently being scheduled to fix recent damage to the decking boards and once this has been carried out a reopening date will be announced.”
