Jurong Bird Park Tour

Jurong Bird Park is a visitor destination in Boon Lay, Singapore. The bird park, maintained by Wildlife Reserves Singapore, covers an area of 0.2 square kilometers at the western foot of Jurong Hill, the maximum point in the Jurong region. The concept of a permanent bird exhibit was first developed by the late Dr Goh Keng Swee, then Minister for Finance, in 1968. During a World Bank Meeting in Rio de Janeiro, Dr Goh went to its zoological garden and was amazed with its free-flight aviary. He set out to ensure that Singaporeans would have a spot where they could break free from urban life and chill out with nature.

Jurong Bird Park is now a globe-popular bird zoo where there are types of spectacular bird life from around the entire world, such as a large flock of flamingos. It is presently the world’s largest bird park in terms of the number of birds, and second largest both in the number of bird species and land area. There are 5,000 birds of 400 species in Jurong Bird Park, of which 29 are of threatened species.

In 2006, Jurong Bird Park accomplished a S$10 million remodeling. With the upgrading, the park features a new entrance plaza, a park-owned and handled Bongo Burgers restaurant, an ice cream parlor, a gift shop and a bird hospital.
