    Great animal and bird park
    This is a great place to visit not very big but a great place to visit. The different animal and birds are amazing to see. Great to see red squirrels. Great chance to feed goats. Wish could have seen some birds of prey show as would have been great. Great park. Staff friendly and helpful.
    Hi William, Thank you so much for visiting and your support. Not sure if you live more locally or was on holiday, but for your info, when you visited there was still UK Avian Flu restrictions in place, but since then they have been lifted and we are now able to run our flying shows. Hope you get the chance to visit again in the future. All the best

    A rainy day in April
    We visited on a very wet miserable day, so most of the birds/animals were in hiding ( I don't blame them) The kids, had a great time in the soft play, and I liked how organised it was, from booking slots, to the health and safety chat as we entered. We enjoyed feeding the sheep and goats the bags of food (50p each) And the pasty was lovely! Looking forward to visting again, maybe on a dry day 😀
    Hi, Thank you so mucg for visiting and leaving a review. We really appreciate your support. Look forward to welcoming you back again in the future. All the best.

    Lovely day out
    Brilliant day out, lots to see with displays and feeding spaced throughout the day. Plenty of areas to sit and watch, chill out and relax. The only negative was the cafe with over priced stale sandwiches.
    Hello, Thank you so much for visiting us and your review. Thank you for the feedback re the cafe - I will pass this on to the management team. We really appreciate your support and hope to see you again. All the best :-)

    Nice Park but value for money questionable
    A lovely park however the admission prices are hard to swallow for a Dad with 3 kids. Bird of prey show commentary also incomprehensible. We left this early as impossible to understand what the guide was saying.
    Hi Ben. Thank you so much for visiting, your support is really appreciated. Always worth checking the website for any offers on entry and we do offer great value Return Tickets plus Season Tickets for more regular visitors although we appreciate these are not suitable for everyone if they are not coming back again soon. I will pass on your comment re the Eagle of Paradise Display commentary, that should not have sounded like that and very sorry that happened. Please know that by visiting, you will have helped us continue with our ongoing conservation work with many species here and around the world. Thank you from all of us at Paradise Park.

 Do check out the eagles, owls, birds of prey and any feeding times too. The sparkly ceiling on the train ride was amazing for our toddler.

Did not expect a visit to a zoo to be the highlight of our trip to Cornwall. Having experienced the joy of seeing tropical birds flying free, birds in cages feel wrong. Paradise Park more than overcomes our reservations. The range of different parrots to see here is more than anyone but a professional naturalist knows about or traveller could see in the wild. Loss of habitat makes captive breeding programmes as conducted here a last hope for preserving species. The care and space for the animals does what it can to make the best of the cages. The information about the birds is cleverly presented:enough to tell an interesting story but not too much detail.
Much of the presentation is rightly designed for children. But there is plenty to interest us pensioners.

We are two mid-60s retirees. Only have 1 grandchild who wasn't there as he's too young. Yet, we really enjoyed our visit today. Saw lots of great and wonderful birds, saw otters (super cute the are) and the penguin feeding. Really lovely to see how many creatures they themselves have either directly reared or assisted in doing so. Particularly the Red Clough, native to Cornwall.

This place has a real special place in my heart.
The hard work the staff do and the pure love they have for the birds is evident to see.
The birds of prey show and the free flying show - just wow. Feel really lucky to witness these magnificent birds doing their thing.
Just awesome

An excellent visit to Paradise Park. The variety of exotic birds is amazing. It makes you realise just how wonderful nature is to create such beautifully coloured birds. The flying display is definitely the highlight of the day, especially when the flock of macaws was released from their enclosure. Penguin feeding time was another highlight despite the fact that most of them were uninterested in food and just wanted to swim in the cool water on what was a really hot day. The choughs were lovely to see and to watch as part of the display.

We were staying at Haven 5 mins away so was easy to get here. We had a great day. The park is very well looked after and maintained. Lots to see! Feeding sessions and the free flying bird show were all great. They also have a play centre which was great for our 1 year old to crawl around in!
Cafe was reasonable for lunch and drinks too.
Would reccomend!

Really enjoyed a trip to paradise park, and learnt loads. Super lucky to get a very quick glance of the baby otters as they poked their heads out the nest. Loads of different birds and animals to see and learn about. Loved the different displays and talks. The penguin one and the birds of prey were particularly good. My fav was feeding the lorikeets. They were beautiful. Really great day out.

A lovely day out with our children. Not a huge place but if you see the talks during the day then it is easily a whole day out!
