Folkestone Zoo / Pets Corner (1947- to Approx 1959) , Lower Leas Park , Folkestone , Kent …. This small Zoo with a collection of Toucan , Fox Cubs , Mongoose , Monkeys , Reptiles , Domestic farm animals and Parrots … Was opened just after World War 2 to try and stimulate tourism back into Folkestone … It succeeded at the time but like a lot of the small seaside Zoos people became disinterested and it eventually closed approximately 1959
