TOP TEN THINGS TO DO AT PARADISE PARK THIS SUMMER
- Children love the August Red Panda Ranger Quiz! Learn about these endangered animals and the individual characters who live at the Park. Do the quiz and claim your exclusive Red Panda Ranger badge
- Dinosaurs! In between meeting the birds in the aviaries and at the free flying shows you can explore the grounds on your own dinosaur expedition. Search for the dinosaurs and their eggs, answer all the questions and we will award you our special ‘Paradise Park Professor of Palaeontology’ certificate and your own mini model dinosaur!
- Discover the JungleBarn indoor Play Centre where you can walk the rope bridge, swoosh down the Fireman’s Pole, get dizzy on the spinning discs, climb the nets, fly down the slides, and the little ones can try their hand at the dancing balls in the toddler’s zone. Plenty to exhaust the liveliest of children!
- Amazing flying shows, with the ‘Eagles of Paradise Display’ at 12noon – see eagles, owls and hawks fly free near the Fun Farm!
- And in the afternoon at 3:30pm enjoy the ‘Free Flying Bird Show’ where beautiful parrots plus other birds, fly free, on the stage and across the picnic lawn too (please note the flying displays are weather permitting).
- Every day you can see otter feeding at 10:30am and 4:30pm, plus, enjoy Carrot Time in the Fun Farm at 11:30am.
- Experience ‘Flight of the Rainbows’. You can buy small pots of nectar to feed the forty plus Lorikeets that come swooping out from there enclosure down onto the awaiting crowd. It’s a fantastic experience! This is at 2pm each day.
- The fantastic Penguin Photocall is a visitor favourite! We have two penguin feeding sessions at 11am and 3pm and a few lucky children are asked to help feed them. This is usually followed by the Penguin Photocall – have your camera ready! Find out more details about the availability of the Penguin photocall on our website.
- Enjoy a tasty lunch in the Otter Pool Café. From locally made cakes and pasties to delicious Ploughman’s Lunches and hot dishes, it’s a great place to sit and watch the otters as they play in their pool. Or pop over to the ‘Bird in Hand Pub’ at the entrance to the Park.
- Take a stroll around the Park and see up to 140 species, including many endangered species like the Sun Conure, Citron-crested Cockatoo and the Blue-throated Macaws. Some species info here

From Andy B “totally fantastic day out for the whole family, and for all ages. Make sure you plan your day around the feeding sessions and the flying shows. Highly recommended”
From Julie M “Sometimes if you go to zoos etc its a shame to see birds in small cages etc but that is absolutely not the case here, the entire park and enclosures themselves are spacious, stimulating for each animal and beautifully kept. Everywhere is clean and the animals all seem very very well looked after and loved. The small park and indoor play area are lovely, my son loved the train ride and there were lots of benches to rest and oppurtunities to get involved with feeding/watching feeds etc. i loved even just walking around and seeing the plants and different flowers, it is beautiful here. Will definitely come back when in cornwall for other holidays, worth every penny.”

From Amy C “I really love it here, and have been many times over the years! You can tell that the animals are really well cared for, and it’s nice to see the same ones every visit. The talks are great to listen to, and it’s amazing to feed nectar to the lorikeets! The food in the cafe is tasty and reasonably priced. Hopefully it won’t be long before I’m back again!”
From Sandra C “Absolutely lovely day out. We mainly came to find dinosaurs in the special trail quiz running this summer, having a dinosaur mad 2 year old. However were pleasantly surprised at how much we enjoyed the park. The staff were friendly and obviously love the birds and animals. There was a lot of opportunity to interact as well. Even got to stroke a penguin! There is a nice soft play area, remember your socks for this one, adults and kids need them. Although can purchased for a pound if need be. Overall worth the trip.”
