A tropical haven of wonderful plants and animals situated in the heart of the city.

Plantasia has recently been outsourced

to Glendale who takes over management in the next few months. 

  • As Plantasia no longer comes under the umbrella of the Local Authority and “The Botanical Complex”, FCSBC will no longer be financially supporting this unique tropical haven of plants and animals.
