  • My family and I had a wonderful time visiting Sylvan Heights. I love animals and it was fun being able to visit a place that protects these beautiful birds. I really enjoyed seeing the black swan and her babies. They were so adorable!!! The staff was super friendly and helpful. Will definitely be going back
  • We had such an incredible time visiting Sylvan Heights. The exhibits are beautiful and it's awesome how up close and personal your can be with these gorgeous birds. This is a fun place for people of all ages and an awesome place to try out your photography skills.
  • Amazing place to visit. It's very relaxed, you get to interact with some of the birds and even feed pink flamingos. Plan to stay at least 90 minutes and I highly recommend at least two bags for bird food per person.
  • A pleasant place. The variety of birds is amazing. And they all seem to be well cared for. Fun place to take a picnic lunch and spend a few hours walking through, or the better part of a day. It's a bit off the beaten path, but there is at least one good steakhouse nearby if you head home around suppertime.
  • Lots of fun. Nice leisurely pace. You get to walk around with the birds. Kids love it, especially the parakeet cage.
