  • Definitely worth a visit. Our family of 3 all enjoyed it, especially the landing zone where you get to interact with a lot of different birds up close. All the staff we interacted with were very friendly and seemed to really enjoy what they were doing. The enclosures are great, and there is an amazing variety of birds. We arrived on a Thursday in June before 10am and it was very quiet. A lot more people were there by 1pm, but it never felt crowded. We joined, and will definitely be returning.
  • Absolutely loved this place! The layout of it is perfect, it has play area for children , picnic tables and tons of seating options all throughout. Not to mention the variety of birds you get to see and learn about. It was very clean and interactive. Great place with nature walks and viewing spots for those avid bird watchers. I will be going back.
  • We really like coming here. Its like walking in a giant aviary. I love seeing all the different types of birds from other countries. It's a great place for any age. Very relaxing also. The staff and volunteers are very nice and helpful. Can't wait to go again!
  • Really neat little place tucked away outside a very small town. Lots of cool birds. Open and up close exhibits with a well designed flow. Absolutely loved feeding the flamingos and other birds!! Very natural environment around the exhibits also - nice shade on a super hot day.
  • This is a good place to visit if you are in town or passing through. I made a special trip to see this place. And was disappointed. Do not make a special trip to come here. It is not that great. You can go through the entire park in 45 minutes.
