The total area of the Lisbon Zoo is approx 26 hectares (64,25 acres) and despite the zoo is located in the center of the city, they for sure have some extra area still free and unused around 10-15 hectares (25-37 acres), mostly in the north section of the zoo.
For the young kids, there’s also daily shows of dolphins and sea lions available, which are very popular.
