HELLO! WELCOME TO COLCHESTER ZOO

Koi Niwa

We have a number of Koi carp housed in a Japanese-influenced exhibit - Koi Niwa.

Japanese decor and materials have been imported to ensure that this enclosure is as authentic as possible. The exhibit is set in the style of a typical Japanese garden with statues, ornaments and waterfalls.

Within the exhibit there are two large pools and two filtration systems visible to our visitors, with interesting information and facts on how they work.

Internationally renowned sculptor and mosaic artist Anne Schwegmann-Fielding has completed a mosaic Koi sculpture to go amongst the Japanese inspired gardens which are currently being completed in our Koi Niwa area. Check out the time lapse video below to see the sculpture being created!
