|ZOO PARQUE MEDINA
At only 16 Km. from the bridge of La Barra, taking
the Camino Egusquiza to San Carlos, almost at the ruta 9, you
will find this state zoo, exhibiting in its majority native
specimens and some other animals from different origin, mainly
Even if it is not a zoo of big dimensions, it
is a nice drive to do on a sunny afternoon. In general it is well
maintained and the animals are in very good conditions. The park
is by itself a place with a lot of charm, specially by the
riverside (you can see the greenest part in the picture below).
The road from and to La Barra is in good
conditions and has very beautiful views that are characteristic
of the Uruguayan countryside.
