Ventura Wildlife at the Van Hage Garden Centre opened on 23 July for a preview day and opens permanently from 30 July.
The animals on show include a fossa, Cuban hutia, llama, alpaca, zebra, wallabies, emu, reindeer, armadillo, tropical and water birds including parakeets, and lemurs.
The zoological gardens have been created after a year of planning and work.
Ventura hope to attract 300-500 customers a day. Prices are £7 for adults and £6 for 2-16s. They plan to develop the attraction and then possibly bring it elsewhere too.
Van Hage has an existing small animal petting zoo.
