Boyd Zoo used to be located at Royal Oak and was the earliest Zoological Garden in New Zealand. Unfortunately the lion escaped and ran down Queenstown Road. Happily it was recaptured by the zoo-keeper's son but led to the closure of the gardens. Today, you are quite safe to shop, work and have coffee here without the addition of a lion!
