Lovely place to walk through in this large avairy. Lots of different birds flying and eating food at their food tables. Worth a half-day visit and restaurant at the end overlooking the dam with lots of ducks, swans and flamigoes. Peaceful place in the country.

I visited the park with a school group, no discount was offered... The park is large and beautiful with a variety of birds. The quide was knowlable but with a heavy accent sometimes hard to understand. The kids really enjoyed the walk amongst the birds...More
