Fun to do with children, things to read and animals to see, mostly birds, from small to Condors, they renovated it lately, with nice safe walking paths, take a pick-nick with with you to eat at the tables there or on the grass or after you come out in Liberty Park to enjoy, there is even a small gift store...

Tracy Aviary is an annual stop f or our family when the children visit. It is a special place in SLC, which is good for both adults and children. The shows they put on with the birds are fun and informative.

Gardens are charming and we did a self tour. There are many programs and tours available. The weather was perfect so we saw many different birds.

Tons of birds to see from all over the world. Lots of interactive things as well. The garden inside are great this time of year. They used to have a bird show, not sure if it was just nut running the day we went or if it stopped.

Had nice selection of birds. Pretty area. Friendly staff. I think if they added more fun things to do there it would be better though.

After the construction was completed, I was convinced to go check it out on a free day they were having. It was almost like a really nice zoo, only with all birds. I would say it is worth a trip now :) My children and I had LOTS of fun, and it was really beautifully landscaped. We liked it so... More

I love being able to go here and see all the birds. This has just become a better attraction year after year. I remember when I was young it wasn't as nice as it is today. If you have time please go and see this it is a unique place and one of Utah's better attractions while in the city.

I did my best to enjoy it. My 5 year old niece was to impressed, one she seen the bird she moved right along to the next. So I didn't get to really read much about the birds but did go there because of her. She did enjoy it, but not the most exciting thing for a 5 year old.

I am born and raised in SLC and remembered going here as a kid and thought to go again. This is not the same place you remember from your childhood. I think every corner of the Aviary has been updated and they have done an excellent job. We went to the little indoor bird encounter show and it was great!... More
