The ideas of Dutch landscape designer Willem Ter Braake were the basis for its creation in 1956. In 1997, the Association of Parents of Mentally Handicapped Children managed the park and, over time, became its main shareholder. The association offers training and work to around a hundred employees with intellectual disabilities. Thanks to various specialized partnerships, the Wonderful Park promotes the integration of mentally handicapped adults. In 2017, they are eighty-five under adapted contracts out of a total of one hundred and twenty employees. Amazonia, the tropical house was inaugurated in 2003. Two years later opened the Forest Discovery educational playground. New for 2008 is Mahajanga, the greenhouse in western Madagascar. Several animals are entering the park. Six arctic wolves and two fennecs moved in in 2010, a couple of marabouts did the same in 2013 as well as eight Barbary macaques in 2015. The African pond was enlarged in 2012 and the minigolf was renovated in 2014.
