Situated on Jurong Hill is the largest bird park in the world – Jurong Bird Park, featuring 8,000 birds of more than 600 species. Founded in 1971 and managed by Wildlife Reserves Singapore, Jurong Bird Park was first initiated by Dr Goh Keng Swee, the then Minister for Finance, with the prime objective of providing an exclusive leisure zone for the residents of Jurong – little more an industrial area at that time. But little did Dr. Goh know that the park would turn out to be a world-renowned attraction catering to more than 900,000 visitors per year. In fact, there are many tourists who now visit Singapore solely to visit this open-concept park and its rare bird ensemble.
Spread over an area of about 202,000sqm, Jurong Bird Park is truly a haven for bird watching aficionados, with a slew of specialties such as the African Waterfall Aviary, the Jungle Jewels Flight Aviary, the Lory Loft and the Southeast Asian Birds Aviary. The African Waterfall Aviary – the largest walk-in aviary – is reminiscent of an African rainforest. It stands out not only for its exotic array of birds such as black-masked birds, shoebills and saddle billed storks but also as the site of the world’s tallest manmade waterfall.
A journey through the exhilarating Jungle Jewels Flight Aviary with its unique bird specialties such as red-crested cardinals and yellow hooded black birds enables you to get a glance of a South American rainforest. Speaking of Lory Loft, it’s the largest of its kind in the world, and here you’ll come across more than 1,000 free-flying, beautiful lories. Further, the Southeast Asian Birds Aviary boasts of more than 250 species of birds in their natural environment.
The park is equally noteworthy for its exhibits in the form of the Hornbills and Toucans Exhibit that is home to a huge assortment of Southeast Asian hornbills as well as South American toucans, Parrot Paradise, where you’ll be enthralled to find a variety of parrots that numbers more than 90, Pelican Cove – a must-visit section to view different species of pelicans, Royal Ramble that houses endangered crowned pigeons, Swan Lake with an array of swans including mute swans and black-necked swans and World of Darkness that holds the distinction of being the first nocturnal birdhouse in Asia. Additionally, there is an area in the park specifically set for Birds of Paradise.
Beyond bird watching, a trip to Jurong Bird Park is both a fun and learning experience with highlights such as Penguin Coast – a climate-controlled area whose inhabitants include jackass penguins and rockhoppers, Heliconia Repository – an attractive area filled with blooming Heliconia tropical flowers, Birdz of Play – a bird-themed Funland and Bird Discovery Centre that showcases interesting displays in the avian world. Above all, don’t miss out the entertaining shows conducted at the park, like Lunch with Parrots, King of the Skies and Birds n’ Buddies Show.
