History of Mangkang Zoo
This zoo has been in operation for a long time, starting in February 2007. Previously, there was a Tinjomoyo Zoo, but its condition was poor, so finally the Mangkang Zoo was established to replace Tinjomoyo. Since 2006, the existing animals have started to be moved to the new place. If you want to know its history further, there is still the Tegalwareng Zoo. In 1954, this zoo was founded. The concept used at that time was a combination of a zoo with an amusement park, but many animals became stressed because of this concept. Yes, it is true that amusement parks are very noisy and the animals in zoos are disturbed by it. Until, finally in 1985 the zoo was moved to the Tinjomoyo Zoo and Catfish Park. So indeed its history is quite long, and why is that also the story of why Bonbin Mangkang is located on the border of Semarang city. Currently Mangkang Zoo Semarang is also known as Taman Marga Satwa Semarang.
