Stopped by for about two hours. There is a nice variety of birds from all over the globe. The owl forest was a nice section. They also had a short presentation with the Macaws, one of which was able to paint. The aviary also participates in bird conservation projects around the globe. A nice place to visit.

Great place to relax and enjoy the great birds and scenery. The staff are always great and you have opportunities to interact with critters. Kids love it.

We took our grandchildren to the aviary located within Liberty Park. The admission prices are very reasonable. The exhibits were interesting and educational. We were there on a hot day, but there is a lot of shade. There were several small playgrounds and climbing structures scattered throughout the aviary, which I thought was brilliant. Only downside--no snack bar; you can... More

My daughter's wedding and reception were held at the Chase Mill and surrounding gardens at Tracey Aviary. The whole experience was wonderfully perfect. The newlyweds were so happy with everything. The grounds were beautiful and the staff was very accommodating.

This was a beautiful aviary, with two young kids we found a lot to do and spent about 1.5 hours exploring the site. Reasonable pricing too.

The aviary has grown a lot since the last time I was there several years ago. There are lots of varieties of birds. My family spent a couple of hours there and had a very nice time. After you see the aviary, spend some time in Liberty Park having a picnic lunch and enjoying some quality family time.

The birds are, of course, great to look at but do not miss the chance to feed the pelicans. It is an experience you will not forget.

One of the best aviaries in the west. Nestled inside of Liberty Park & close to a great burger spot, Camp. Camp is home to my favorite burger in town. They have summer hours. Be sure to say hi to Ande & Reeves when you visit the birds

Spent about 2 hours here and really enjoyed seeing the wide variety of birds (in the middle of Liberty Park, next to the children's rides). Everything from an Andean Condor to a Scarlet Ibis, with plenty of owls, flamingos, raptors and more. We didn't have time to stay for the bird show, but I hear it's very good. It was... More
