I took my baby and toddler here because I knew they had owls (my daughter loves owls) and was pleasantly surprised at how much there was to see. There were so many different kinds of birds, large and small, colorful and not. From the outside,...More

Tracy Aviary has changed so much since I last visited many years ago. The walk ways and gathering spots , including a sand and water play area for kids are all engaging and fun for adults and kiddos. The owl exhibit was my favorite.

Probably best for people with small children, as Adults it was not very interesting. Would only recommend for families with small children. It also was hard to find the entrance.

I really enjoy this place we've been there 3x in trips from Ohio. The owls were so neat to see and watching the baby ducks was fun.

This is a fabulous spot to spend some time with the grand kids and family in an edifying and instructional outdoor venue. The grounds are immaculate, the displays are informative and they obviously care for the health and well being of their birds.

The Good: The free-flight show was nice, and they pass on a very good message about keeping parrots (i.e. Don't, please, unless you're 300% sure you know what you are getting into). The open part of the grounds were nicely maintained. Birds were generally visible...More

Thank you so much for your feedback Darin! You are totally right, the construction is a bit of a bummer right now. However, it will be worth it in a few months! We are working hard on a new, bigger exhibit for the keas, as...More

If you are traveling to Salt Lake City or even if you LIVE here but have never been to the Aviary......go. It's worth it. Not huge so you don't get exhausted trying to see everything.
