Giveaway | Tracy Aviary | First Timer Visit
I took my younger two kids to the Tracy Aviary for the first time. I was pleasantly surprised by the deceptively large aviary found on the southwest corner of Liberty Park's 8-acres.
First thing I noticed, accessible parking. There is a separate parking lot for the Tracy Aviary so you don't have to park along the narrow loop of Liberty Park.
Once inside we went straight to the Utah Wetlands experience. This exhibit has been designed to replicate the birds and plants indigenous to the Great Salt Lake. The star attraction was not the birds nor plants, but the edible Utah Service Berries found inside. We spent about 5 minutes picking berries and eating them.
Along another path is a secret strawberry patch. They weren't ripe, but if they were I am sure we would have spent another minute there sampling the fresh fruit.
We loved the bird show, but if it's a sunny day get there early! There are only two shaded spots in the outdoor bird show theater. The large birds swooping inches above our heads was a particularly thrilling experience for the kids.
After that we ran over to feed fish to Pelicans. For a minimal cost you will have a bowl of 4-6" long fish that you can throw into the gaping pelican mouths. If touching fish isn't really your thing, there is also the amazon adventure available. You can feed flocks of sun conures. We didn't feed the conures, but will definitely be back and this is at the top of our list.
Another neat thing they offer are free (once inside the park) education experiences. One we were excited to try was the 'sense-stational stream exploration.'
Overall we had a really great time. The staff was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. There were handicap accessible restrooms (with changing tables) located near the entrance and the back side of the Aviary. I took a stroller and only encountered one set of steps, but could easily have back tracked and avoided them. There was plenty of shaded paths to escape the heat and multiple picnic tables to eat a lunch. We ran across a little water play space and sand pit for kids. Also, they allow food so pack a lunch and don't forget sunscreen and hats if it's a hot day!
