Protecting our birds
Due to national regulations to prevent the spread of bird flu ‘Avian Influenza’ and to help protect our 1,200 birds, we have a walk-through footbath (like a wet mat) which contains a ministry approved disinfectant against bird flu. All our aviaries are now open.

Covid cases are still high in Cornwall, please do not visit if you feel unwell. We continue to have screens at shop and café counters and sanitiser stations around the Park. It is your choice to wear a face covering during your visit including in our indoor areas, but it is no longer compulsory.


  • We have a collection of over 1,200 birds including many rare and beautiful parrots, Humboldt’s penguins, Caribbean flamingos, Red-billed Cornish choughs, Golden and Bald eagles, kookaburras, hornbills, toucans and so many more. Plus, beautiful Red pandas, rare Red squirrels and very cute tiny Harvest Mice and farm animals.
  • To use the Indoor JungleBarn Play Centre please book ‘PARK & JUNGLEBARN’ tickets. See the booking page for more info.
  • The Paradise Island outdoor play area is open.
  • Bug and Butterfly Quest – runs until 26th July. A fun way to explore the amazing world of insect life. Search out the questions around Paradise Park to learn about colourful butterflies, barmy bugs and creepy insects. Answer all the questions and claim your special reward.
