  • Completely different feeling to visiting a zoo or other animal “farm”. Beautiful and colourful gardens house animals that have been rescued and healed. Informative “train” ride, exhibits.  more »
  • Yes they have some flamingos that are quite entertaining to watch. We love the peacocks wandering around making multiple photo ops. The really big deal for us was the aviary where many birds are there...  more »
  • This turned out to be a real highlight of our South Florida trip. Our 4 and 5 year old children loved all the birds (one was scared of the very large alligators), the tram ride, and the beautiful flow...  more »

  • This place is great! The animals are all rescued and rehabilitated to hopefully one day be released back into the wild. And if not they try their best to care for them. There is a wild bird area that is fun to walk through. Josh the bear is adorable. And seeing the peacocks walk around is a neat experience. The staff who work here are extremely nice and welcoming. Never had a problem or complaint. I've visited this place at least 3 to 4 times a year for the past 3 years and each time I still have fun. It's a relaxing place and fun to take pictures. They also have a cute gift shop. I have bought many cute stuffed animals. Fun to family and children.
  • Fun place to visit! We went with our daughter and her 2 baby girls while visiting from MN. My husband and I are "into" birds, so we were happy! Only problem: watch where you walk and don't stand under a tree too long, or you may be doused with bird poo!
  • Wife and I had a lot of fun exploring. We came for the flamingos but were mesmerized by all the other animals there especially the peacocks. Be sure to take the tram ride to go deeper into the park and see more you can't access by foot. Well worth the price of admission, would go again. Highly recommended.
  • Very nice park. It was small but definitely large enough for us. The flamingos were in an attractive habitat and there were several Champion trees. Even though the hurricane hit the park and uprooted many trees, there are so many beautiful trees left it's difficult to miss the others. There were several other birds and animals in habitats throughout the park.
  • Great tour! Amazing how well they were able to clean up after the hurricane! I love coming here, can't wait to come again! The staff really loves this place.
