We attended a wedding here and were able to visit the aviary for free earlier in the day plus wander during the reception. The variety of the birds is stunning and the staff is very knowledgeable. The bald eagles are exquisite.

Got to experience the Tracy Aviary has it hosted the Eat Drink SLC event, which was fantastic by the way. The Aviary is amazing as well. Some incredible varieties of birds all on display to see and learn about. Great photo opportunities throughout the experience. Definitely a must see attraction. My only issue is with finding the Aviary. Its located... More

Met some friends from SLC there and spent a few hours before our flight out of SLC. Caught a couple of their shows and walked around. Cool collection of birds and entry fee was very reasonable. Airport is only about 15 mins away.

It is a great place for kids. Not too spread out but does require walking. We spent about 3 hours there with rest stops as I had a total knee replacement 7 months ago.

The aviary has been redone in the past few years, and they are still adding to it. It has a wide variety of birds, a gift shop-visitors center, and a bird show. It is in Liberty Park which has large old trees, walks, a pond, picnic areas, and playgrounds. It was a fun outing.

Kids will love it. There is plenty to do in the park. Great place to take a jog. Plenty of birds and things to see inside the park. Like a Bird Zoo, I guess that what aviary means. It was worth the couple buck to take my daughter and let her wander around.

Located in Liberty Park. Even though it is in the heart of the city, it feels like you are far away. The staff is always helpful to answer questions and there is plenty to learn.

Personally love this place more than the zoo. Maybe because it is closer to my place. It is well maintained, easy walk, and the birds are all in good condition.

A wonderful collection of birds, but a bit depressing to seem some magnificent specimens in cages. Many were injured and could not have survived in the wild, but still has a certain sadness to see where they will spend their days. Kids love it, and our kids learned a lot going here and will still say it is one of... More
