Paradise Park, Hayle, is an award-winning Wildlife Sanctuary, opened in 1973. It was Mike Reynolds who first had the idea of creating a place which could be home to his growing collection of birds.

Paradise Park has won many accolades for its conservation work and as an excellent family day out. The gardens provide an exotic backdrop for the wildlife. The JungleBarn indoor play centre ensures families can have fun in the Park in all weathers.

Conservation products; The World Parrot Trust, started at Paradise Park, is now active around the world and operation Chough was established at Paradise Park in 1987.It’s not just birds, they also support The Red Panda Network, and the Red Squirrel Project to name just a few. 

They have a selection of daily events which include otter feeding, penguin feeding, eagles of paradise flying, free flying bird show and general public hand feeding little parrots nectar.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day here, the highlights for us were standing in a large aviary hand feeding nectar to small parrots and watching the free flying show in the afternoon, it was stunning to see macaws free flying around the audience. There was ample parking in a big field so no space worries for motor homes. 100% worth every penny for adults and children alike.
