Visitors will have an exciting experience of watching colourful and melodic birds perching and winging about freely while relaxing in a natural and beautifully landscaped surrounding. KL Bird Park is also reputed to be the largest walk-in free-flight aviary in the world.
I'm not usually one for visiting animals in captivity, but I would have to say the K.L. Bird Park is one of the better 'zoos' I have seen. The majority of the birds have plenty of space to move around and it does give children the opportunity of seeing the birds up close.
I was disappointed that there was a 'circus' performance with the traing of some of the birds to 'act' for an audience, but in generally the conditions are good for birds in captivity.
The Park is close enough to the centre of K.L. to make it a half-day trip.
It's near the Famous Bird Park. Easily reached by taxi . Located in downtown.
Not less than 12 kinds of butterflies can be seen in the park.
The park is an imitation of the butterfly's natural habitat. It includes more than 15,000 plants from 100 species that have been used to recreate a Malaysian rainforest atmosphere. There is a nursery and breeding area for the butterflies.
Facilities include an informative insect museum.
Open: 9am - 6pm (Daily)
Admission non Malaysians: RM18 (Adults)
The bird park in kl is an inique experience esp if u hv kids travelling with u. The fact that its fully covered by huge nets mean that birds are flying around and the larger ones are walkin with you.

And it was a pleasant experience. Its a must visit for family and kids.the park is open from 9am to 7pm dailym entry fee for non malays is rm 28 for adults and rm 20 for kids. The entire park is 20.9 acres.

Although the park does look like it has seen better days, its a bit shabby in places, it was still worth the visit and was a nice finish to a long day of walking. As we moved around the park we could hear the call to prayer from the Mosque at the back of the park. Birds slowly went about there business and there were only one other couple in the park. We had the place to ourselves which was nice.
While jungle trekking is great for some, for others a bird park is more suitable.
The park is the world's largest free flight aviary (20 acres), boosting to have over 3,000 birds.
Most birds are allowed to fly around freely, allowing you a wonderful chance to get up close and take some great pictures.
Birds who might cause harm like the large horn bill are kept in their own personal shelters. While it may be hard to get a good picture, it's about the only way you will see one close up.
The walkways are gently slopped and well maintained, which makes for easy walking and chair accessible.
Ice cream and cold drinks are also sold in the park.
You need to allow at least a couple of hours to truly enjoy.
20.9 acres, 3000 birds, 200 species. Most of the birds are free to roam in aviaries resembling their natural habitat. Watch out for the hornbills and peacocks and don't miss the waterfall aviary!
Daily activities include bird feedings and bird shows. It is a nice way to spend the day just strolling and snapping pictures of the feathered residents of the park.
The bird park is located in the scenic KL Lake Gardens area, which also boast the Deer Park, Orchid Garden, Hibiscus Garden and Planetarium Negara. If you want to visit all these places in a single day, keep in mind that not all are open on public holidays.
The bird park is open from 9am to 7.30pm daily. Admission charges are on the steep side, but cheaper for locals, so if you are not a local but look like one, say you are one!
I can go on and one putting more pics of the birds but I think this is enough...after that we also went for a bird show - it is quite entertaining esplly for kids...but we are marvelled that birds can also be taught tricks..
The bird shows are around 1/2 hour and usually around 12:30pm and also another during the afternoon 3:30 pm but if it is a public holiday there is one around 10:30 am.
It's located in the West part of KL and easy reachable by metro, KL Central Station.
It's world's largest free-flight walk-in aviary!
You'll be surprised by various birds around and by fantastic and picturesque shots with your camera!
The entrance fee is about 30 MYR.
the KL Bird Park, situated within the lake gardens, features a 'walk-in free flight aviary' said to be the largest in the world. it is home to about 3,000 birds and the main attractions are the hornbills, the african macaws, peacocks, and flamingoes. the park is best visited in the morning when the birds are most active in the walk-in aviary.
since there is a walk-in aviary expect birds of all shapes and sizes to be milling around the gardens or flying overhead. so do watch out for bird poop which is either in the pathways or can be dropped on your head by a bird flying overhead.
if you're planning to go to the park allot half a day for this activity. you'll be doing a lot of walking so its a must to wear comfortable shoes. it is also advisable to bring bottled water (or something cold to drink) which can serve you well when you're inside and in between pit stops.
the park is open daily from 9:00am - 6:30pm. as of november 2006 admission fee was RM28 for non-Malaysian adults and RM20 for non-Malaysian children.
The bird park in KL claims to be the largest covered aviary in the world. Don’t know if that’s true, but it is still a nice place to spend an hour or two. The area is quite nice, but some of the birds are not necessarily in best condition with missing feathers etc., which was a bit sad. But then again, I don’t know very much about birds, so can’t say if the poor condition is due to the care they get or time of year.
The most interesting parts for us were the many hornbill species, especially the Great Hornbill, and little parrots that fly freely in the bigger parrot cage. We’d heard some of the bigger parrots know a few words, but sadly none of them wanted to speak. So no “Polly wants a cracker” for us then. ;)
Be warned that the bird park is very hot due to its location on the bottom of a small valley so the wind can’t reach it. There are many covered rest stops around the park, though, and reasonably priced refreshments are available, but the bravest peacocks will try to share them with you. They aren’t aggressive but they will appear from all directions when they see you buying something from the kiosk.
admission to the park is 30 RM. nearby is the orchid garden.(admission 1 RM),
the park is nice especially waterfall aviary. you can see hornbills,flamingoes,parrots,herons and other exotic species. there is also a small souvenir shop on the premises and a bar/cafe.
you can take pictures with parrots for 5RM if you use your own camera.
