Melaka Bird Park, hailed as the first open aviary bird park in Malacca, is built on a 1.8 hectare site at the Botanical Garden in Ayer Keroh, Malacca. It has the largest aviary in Malaysia and will be the only bird park to house such a large collection of Malaysian bird species. With nearly 700 bird species calling the lands and waterways of Malaysia home, the bird park aims to protect every species and educate the public by hosting a number of educational and recreational programmes.
The exterior of Melaka Bird Park is impressive: it resembles a downscaled stadium with plenty of greenery and a massive model of a parrot perched on a welcome sign. A pond and mini river (with a few fish swimming inside) is also built with wooden bridges leading to the entrance.
