Brooklands Zoo will be the place to be this Saturday as the New Plymouth District Council hosts a family fun day.
The event, which was postponed last Sunday because of poor weather, will include free ice blocks, $2 coffees and 100 passes for free row-boating on Pukekura Park's main lake. Any updates about the event, which will run from 11am to 2pm, will be posted on the Facebook pages of Brooklands Zoo and New Plymouth District Council.
