"Nice gardens and animals and birds"

I went for the flamingo fest and was disappointed that there was not more flamingo related decorations to buy. There were lots of artistry which was fun to look at and enjoy the flamingo pond. The gardens were beautiful as well as looking at the birds and animals was great. But as far as advertising the flamingo fest was somewhat disappointed.

Place was not crowded, easy to walk in the shade and there are a lot of birds and animals to see. There is a tram tour you could go around the property, at certain times.

"Fun family outing & more than just flamingos!"

We had a blast with our toddler and his grandparents. The sanctuary has 60 acres but you can take a relaxing tram ride to view part of the property. The flamingos are the main attraction but they also have a panther, bobcat & black bear and owls, hawks, ducks, turtles, and variety of birds and magnificent trees. The grounds are beautifully maintained with clean bathrooms and a food and snack area.

"Lovely!"

Strongly recommend visiting this place while in the area. The sprawling lands are wonderful to walk around and help you feel on your own even when there's many visitors around. The animals are beautiful to look at, the birds are so plentiful, happy, and friendly to be around. And there's amazing vegetation to look at / learn about. The hourly "tram" ride is informative and fun (can also hop off along the way to explore the grounds). My family spent 2 hrs with two curious young children; I can see spending much longer if time permits. A definite step-up vs. visiting a zoo, and an amazing cause. Thank you, Wray Family, for the astonishing legacy.

"Not what I was expecting"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5

Not much to see. One panther, one bear, 2 alligators, one bobcat, flamingos, a few vultures. ....Though I command the sanctuary’s existence to care for injured animals, there really isn’t much to see. Flower gardens? We barely saw flowers . Ride in the train is not informative as it is impossible to hear what the guide is saying because the sound on the microphone is horrendous. They should know this and fix the problem. I am sorry but I really do not understand the positive reviews. I was so looking forward to a walk in nature watching animals in a natural habitat. . Park is not well kept either. Overall , a huge disappointment..
