We were thrilled with the vast selection of birds we were able to see here. Many are native to other continents that we might not have been able to see without traveling to the exotic places some of the birds call home. A truly wonderful afternoon of walking through gardens and witnessing the beauty of feathered friends.

I'm a huge bird fan and I love Tracy Aviary. I've visited it regularly since I was a child. It's showing its age a bit nowadays, but it's a wonderful way to spend a lazy afternoon.

Tracy Aviary is in the middle of a large, well-established city park. Entrance fees are affordable and there are group rates. All animals are well cared for and the trainers and staff genuinely care. There are at least two free shows we have seen, and the birds are fun to watch! Plus, when out in the park at certain times... More

This lovely Aviary is located in Liberty Park. On a partly sunny day my son and I perfectly timed a trip to this Aviary. The birds were busy enjoying a sunny moment, and we were able to stroll around for about an hour. I took some nice photos and enjoyed the day. Looks like they have kiddy rides open during... More

The aviary is small but there are all types of birds and exhibits. We attended the live show which was informative and the kids liked the presentation.

We love this urban bird retreat in the middle of Liberty Park, a very busy and well used city park. Stop at the The Park Restaurant across the Aviary before your stroll to see the birds. Nice hour or so activity in Salt Lake. Historic grounds.
