More on Social Media

Discover the world’s largest collection of rare and endangered waterfowl. Sylvan Heights gives visitors the opportunity to see over 2,500 birds from around the world, from ducks, geese, and swans, to parrots, pheasants, cranes, owls, toucans, flamingos and much more.

Visitors of all ages and interests can walk through continentally-themed aviaries, experiencing the diverse beauty, color, and sound of these creatures. For an even more interactive experience, guests can feed parakeets and flamingos in the park’s Landing Zone exhibit. An amazing handicapped-accessible tree house overlooks the natural wetlands, and the Beaver Pond Blind allows visitors to get closer to North Carolina’s native wildlife. We offer regularly scheduled educational programming and special events. Tours are self-guided, but guided tours are also available by appointment. Call for the details.

Have your wedding in a tree house overlooking the natural wetlands, followed by a reception at the Golden Leaf Room. We can accommodate 100 guests (seated) or 200 for a reception. Cathedral ceilings with exposed beams, double glass doors with a view of the naturalized garden area, back windows overlooking the wrap-around deck and pond with ducks, geese, and swans. Three fountains in the main pond add to the atmosphere, especially at night when the entire area is lit with floodlights. A catering kitchen and flat screen monitor available.

Toad Hall Pavilion is now available for your next wedding, reunion, party, or other events! Featuring a stone fireplace and rustic decor, this 3,200 square foot event space can seat up to 200 guests, and is nestled among the aviaries at Sylvan Heights Bird Park. The open-air pavilion allows nature to set the backdrop, but clear, weather-proof panels can be lowered during cold or wet weather. The adjacent treehouse overlooks lush natural wetland teeming with wildlife.
