Birdland Park and Gardens

Birdland Park and Gardens was first established in 1957 in the Cotswold village of Bourton-on-the-Water and was one of the first Bird encounters to open in the UK. The 9 acre site is positioned on a former Bryant and May Poplar Tree plantation famous for its matchstick crop! There are still over 150 trees which create a high canopy for the River Windrush.

The beautiful setting is inhabited by over 500 birds. Flamingos, pelicans, penguins, cranes, storks, cassowary, and waterfowl can be seen on various aspects of the natural water habitat. There are also over 50 aviaries featuring parrots, falcons, pheasants, hornbills, touracos, pigeons, ibis and many more. The Desert House is home to the more delicate species, whilst the indoor Discovery Zone features egg laying creatures including fish, amphibians and reptiles.
