Frequently Asked Questions
When is the park open?
Sylvan Heights Bird Park is open Tuesday – Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the spring and summer, and 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the fall and winter. The park is closed on Mondays, except for Easter Monday, Memorial Day, and Labor Day. The park is also closed on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
Do I need to make a reservation before I visit?
Unless you are bringing a large group, a school group, or would like a guided tour, you do not need a reservation. Simply check in at the Visitor Center to pay admission, pick up your park map, and enjoy the birds!
How long does it take to see the entire park?
We recommend allowing at least two hours for your visit, but some people prefer to stay half a day or more! If you plan to visit in the afternoon, we recommend arriving no later than 3:00 p.m. (2:00 p.m. during winter hours) to ensure you have time to see all of the park and experience The Landing Zone, which closes at 4:00.
