Bird lovers can look forward to the new bird park that will be opening as early as the second quarter of the new year.
Aptly named Bird Paradise, the new 17-hectare bird park will replace Jurong Bird Park which is scheduled to close in early January 2023 and relocated to become part of the Mandai Wildlife Reserve.
Here’s a map showing the different sections of the new Bird Paradise.
According to Mandai Wildlife Group, the new bird park will transport visitors to a colourful world that will be home to around 3,500 birds from over 400 avian species.
There will also be immersive and naturalistic mixed-species habitats where visitors can explore 8 large walk-through aviaries which reflect different biomes of the world such as African rainforests, Australian dry eucalypt forests, Southeast Asian paddy fields and more.
Below are the key highlights of Bird Paradise.
Wings of Asia

Penguin Cove brings cool respite, showcasing the fascinating behaviours of penguins. The cold salt-water habitat is designed to facilitate the natural behaviours of the penguins. Penguin Cove also features a sustainable dining experience immersed in an underwater environment with aquatic birds.
The habitat features a Bee-eater’s Cliff where bee-eater species may be observed to dive and swoop to catch insects mid-air.
Australian Outback Habitat
Australian Outback will be home to various species of Lorikeets and endangered cockatoos boisterously communicating in the trees, and flocks of cooing pigeons.

West Arrival Node
Over 1,400 trees would be planted at the West Arrival Node by October 2022. The West Arrival Node serves as the first gateway for visitors, leading to the new Bird Paradise and Rainforest Wild. It will include play areas and several F&B options for guests to enjoy.
Bet you can’t wait for it to open.
