Animal and bird lovers, you will soon be able to visit Asia’s largest bird park here in Singapore.
Bird Paradise Opening Soon
That’s right – the former Jurong Bird Park which has moved to Mandai under the new park name Bird Paradise will be opened officially on 8 May later this year according to Mandai Wildlife Reserve.
Key highlights of the 17-hectare bird park in Mandai include 8 large walk-through aviaries reflecting different world biomes including African rainforests, Southeast Asian paddy fields and Australian dry eucalypt forests.
Guest arriving will be welcomed by an 85-metre-long entry archway that features different animals carved from rock.
Upon arrival, visitors walk through Mandai Wildlife West which connects to the entrance and winged canopy of Bird Paradise.
Mandai Wildlife West
Access to Mandai Wildlife West is free for everyone. Aside from F&B and play areas, the space will also be used for public events and activities.
Before heading inside the Bird Paradise, guests get to marvel at the 10m-tall waterfall feature, sculpted after Indonesia’s Madakaripura waterfall.
Kids can also have fun at the Pangolin Adventure located in Mandai Wildlife West while adults take a break and fuel up at the many F&B options.
Forest Stream is another interactive play area at Mandai Wildlife West.
A heritage wall, illustrated by local artist Lee Xin Li, at the entrance of Bird Paradise pays homage to the legacy and storied 52-year history of Jurong Bird Park.
Sneak Peek Inside
Hong Leong Foundation Crimson Wetlands will enthral with the colour red, offering a journey through the open landscape of the flooded savannahs of South America. The habitat features a waterfall, as a tribute to the Waterfall Aviary of Jurong Bird Park.
At the Heart of Africa, over 70 African bird species such as Starlings and Turacos share the 1.55-ha aviary and are settling well in their new homes.
Final touches are being made at the walk-through aviaries amidst the migration from Jurong Bird Park to Bird Paradise. The Wings of Asia area features species like Pelicans, Asian Black-neck Stork, and Papuan Hornbills.
Visitors will also be able to get behind the scenes and observe avian vets in action at the Avian Healthcare and Research Centre.
