We spent about 3 hours in the park and had a wonderful time. It was so cool to walk among and feed the flamingos. The staff were so friendly and took lots of time answering our questions. Good value.

Thanks for the review Sarah. I will look into your issue with the welcome center offers working on line. We just recently transitioned to a new ticketing system and working out all the problems. Thanks again for your support.

Jungle Gardens during the Christmas season is a great place to take the kids. They light it up and Santa is there for pictures. You can see the flamingo's up close and tour the gardens!

Walking around is beautiful, very lush and tropical. Nice to see all of the animals, especially the flamingos, you can feed them and get up close. But if people beat you to it, they aren’t hungry. It was very (unusually) hot for this time of...More

This place is not very big but it puts a lot into a small space. There are shows throughout the day that are extremely interesting. My grandchildren touched snakes, alligators, fed flamingos etc etc. The snack bar/food was a bust. The animals, staff and setting...More

Nice little place. Very hot day, but plenty of places to sit in the shade and rest. The flamingos are just beautiful.

There is not a lot of walking. You can tour the whole park in 45 minutes if you want. It depends on how long you want to spend looking at the Flamingos and the beautiful birds. They also have shows to watch with seats.
