    Has anyone visited the facility known as Grugapark Essen? The website Zootierliste states that there are 64 species at the establishment, mostly birds, and the large main aviary appears to be very impressive. The structure is 4,000 square meters in size (basically an acre) and 15 meters high, and apparently one of the largest aviaries in Germany. With 500 animals in total, this park clearly qualifies as a 'zoo' and it seems as if it is a popular attraction in the bustling city of Essen.
