Established since 1988, the 5-acre park sits on the mainland portion of Penang State, has a collection of more than 300 species of birds from all over the world, of which more than 150 species are of Malaysian Species.
What to Expect?
Built in a garden concept, the park boasts of its beautiful landscaping with the impressive collections of hibiscus, orchids, bamboo, ornamental plant and palm trees. Cascading waterfalls and natural ponds flourish with colourful fishes, lotus and water lilies, creating a home for the free-roaming pelicans, flamingos, swans, egrets, storks, herons and colourful ducks. Observe from the Chinese-style wooden bridges that traverse the water or relax in the little Malay huts that dot the park to enjoy the beauty of nature at play. A cosy air-conditioned restaurant in the park serves delicious local and western food.
Penang Bird Park is also a home to several species of deers including the smallest deer in the world - Mouse-Deers. Giant Arapaima fish, pythons, giant estuarine crocodile, tortoises and other species of wildlife are also exhibited in this park.

They also have Daily Bird Shows running at 11.00am & 3.30pm.

Make sure you get in time for the bird show so you can watch some tricks. Typically done at 11.30am, and there's another session in the late afternoon. Be armed with a repellent to fight mosquitoes.

It was a magnificent sight to even look at the species that was available here. As a nature lover it was a sanctuary. The place is very well mantained and the staffs are fairly friendly. Not single litter was visible in the vicinity
They were many species that's hard to see but I. Here it's well mended.
Nice place to bring kids and nature lovers.
1. Be sure to bring water, shades and cap/hat to protect yourself on sunny day
2. Bring mosquito repellents along since it's a as close to real habitat of the birds.
3. Certain bird habitat tends to have stench or foul smell, be mindful.
4. It's wheel chair accessible but not recommended for people who can't walk long distances.
5. Lastly, be mindful to follow the cleanliness signs displayed. And do not litter and make noises!

Enjoyed the bird park however I feel it could do with an injection of cash to give more space and better conditions to the birds. There was a closed run down restaurant and with a good investment this place could be a real home for the wildlife and a amazing place to visit.

This is a very old park. My parents brought me here once when I was still a child and today I came back with my husband and son. Seems like they are struggling with the maintenance as the park looks a bit run down. But, the park is quite clean I must say. There is a lot of bird species to see as well as amazing bird show. Entrance fee is quite expensive but as long as the money goes back to the birds, I dont mind paying.
