“Really lovely.”

Wingz Bird Sanctuary
Ranked #1 of 9 things to do in Par
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 19, 2011

We visited this attraction in early September with our son aged 3. After paying a well priced entrance fee, we followed the lovely decked paths to look at the animals. Every bird we saw was housed in a large enclosure, with plenty of space to move, and plenty of food and water.

The animals looked well and despite some of them being rescued by the sanctuary they were vastly improving on how they once had been kept and treated elsewhere. Having had parrots in my family for many years,( An African Grey and a African Green Ringed Necked Parakeet) I have knowledge of their needs and know how badly some silly people keep them, making them prone to problems and stress. This centre looks after the birds and gives them a happy life, which was lovely to see.

Our son loved being followed around the centre by a peacock, who was very friendly, as well as geese and ducks. The meerkats were also very amusing and it was nice to also be able to feed them (for a small charge - you can purchase mealworms to feed them).The owls were very nice and it was nice to see a variety of not so well known birds too.

The sanctuary has a lot of lovely decked pathways, ideal for people with pushchairs or wheelchairs. There is a large grass area for children to play on and have picnics on, as well as a huge collection of free toys to use and play on. The toilets were spotless and very easy to find. I really enjoyed this attraction and the staff were very friendly and welcoming, and they had a great knowledge of the animals they were looking after. In all we would certainly go back for another visit in the future.
