  • I was a little concerned as we pulled up to this little place. The outside looked somewhat make shift, but because we had driven so long to get there we entered. There is a $5/adult charge and you get...  more »

  • This is the best place in Pensacola to take your kids to have an up-close experience with birds of all kinds. Admission is only $5 for adults $2 for kids and 6 and under are free. Your admission also includes a small pale of treats you can share with the birds. We spent over 2 hours and enjoyed every minute of it. Uncle Sandy's is definitely on the top of our fun things to do list in Pensacola!
  • This is a great hidden gem in the community. My kids are always excited to come here. Seeing, feeding and touching some of the birds never gets old. You can’t beat the price, and they offer military discounts. Definitely a very unique and interesting place. Good for a short visit! Make sure to say hi to sweetie! She lives up to her name...
  • The park is staffed by great volunteers! It's not really a zoo or anything but more of a bird sanctuary. If you're looking for a zoo like experience its not really what you will get. However if you want potentially a very intimate experience with the birds that live here you won't be disappointed. If you take time with some of the birds you'll get many laughs and have a great time. If you just run through you probably won't get the full experience. The admission is only $5/per adult currently. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking to spend just 20 minutes and see beautiful macaws, amazons, and cockatoos. I spent a few hours here and was not disappointed. The gentlemen volunteering spent a lot of time telling us about the current bird residents and truly helped make it a very intimate experience.
  • We weren’t sure when we drove up but were so glad we stayed and went in. The family that runs this are very kind and informative. We had a great time feeding all the birds and would go back again. We came all the way from Spokane Wa! The birds are well taken care of.
  • I love that this place is a bird 🐦 rescue. They have parrots and many other types of birds, including some beautiful peacoks. The volunteer staff is amazingly friendly and informative, too. It is fun to feed the birds - especially the emus
