  • Was seeing him since I was little, just 50 years ago, accompanied by my parents and my siblings: it was always a time of joyful happiness. Flowers plants animals made our inexhaustible reservoir of fantasy games and adventures. It felt so many Indiana JOHNS. Now everything has changed: very few flowers, trees, trees, very few animal species. Not to mention the ordinary and extraordinary maintenance, woefully inadequate. Is one of the few green areas inside the ancient city: you have to believe. Hope for the foresight of our newly reelected Mayor. See and hope. Wombat05

  • A nice Park, a beautiful reality fauna of Sicily, to enable people to see many animals

  • The Park is beautiful, it is free, but the animals are not good. It would be perhaps better to pay 1 or 2 euros for entry and feed them better.

  • Lovely place very close by to the history centre of the city, directly infront of the old Royal Palace. One negative tidbit though... not a lot of space to sit! I believe there are... 3 benches? Then again, its a small park so it should be no problem most of the time. Great spot for kids or just to relax a little bit.
  • It is nice for children, but the place is in a bad shape, the animals cages aren't clean or in a good condition, the whole parc need to be refreshed.
  • Crazy Birds! A world of exotic birds! It is a perfectly maintained park. Everything from the little signs talking about the different species of birds to the perfectly hedged greenery. Oddly enough there are goats there too. I got a good chuckle out of the sign that said please don't feed the goats because what people were feeding them gave them health problems so now they are on a strict diet. There are birds of all types from ALL over the world. I have since then read that this park is ONLY for parents who wish to bring their kids. I have been there several times without any hassle. If you just walk in, don't speak Italian, don't stop, start taking pictures asap, I believe the men inside the booth couldn't care less. If they do say something to you just start speaking English and hold up your camera and point to it. I'm sure at that point they will realize you are a tourist and not bother trying to explain to you that you should have kids with you. I also read that this park was just finished in 2010 and is part of a bigger plan. It will only be a small section of the larger park that will have an outdoor theater, an artificial lake, bike paths and trails.

  • Is a public park featuring a beautiful spot, since it is a short distance from the Palace of the Normans. Is mainly frequented by schoolchildren as ornithological garden, so they can see live animal species that would otherwise hardly how meet. The aviaries are however in a maintenance status partly deficient. Some are mostly too outdated and restrictive for the species that dwell there. It is inconceivable that have dimensions small enough the poor birds are not even able to fully unfold their wings, let alone to accomplish the minimum strokes in flight.

  • Unfortunately the Park is not treated as it should. They lack explanatory signs of different bird species present, if not for the Raptors. It is recommended not to give food to animals, but then I saw parrots fed only sunflower seeds. Many cages are empty. Too bad because the Park would have potential.
