“Love this place”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Love that it is a small place for the injured animals to recover or to live forever. They have informative personnel who will answer questions or just let you ramble through on your own. We've been visiting for years and just love the care these critters are shown.

“Small but great”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

We love to get close to the birds and have gotten great photo's. Outside birds do come in to join the feeding time. Nice to see many of these beautiful birds are able to return to nature.

“See lots of birds here”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

This is a good place to spend an hour. Easy to get to and loads of parking. It is run by volunteers. There are lots of birds, many injured and recovering. The area is not large but appears well run. Friendly staff will tell you all about the current residents. No entrance fee but an 'honesty box' for donations and a suggested figure. In the gift shop you can buy snacks and drinks. Have a walk around the park afterwards.

“great park”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Plenty to do here with a beach, mangrove boardwalk, playground, fishing dock, boat ramp and of course the nature center . The nature center has two bald eagles and lots of other birds being rehabilitation.
