Some Colorful Residents

Here on Sanibel Island, we may not have our own zoo, but we do have the next closest thing!

Many of our guests already know about the exotic animal display at Periwinkle Park and Campground.  If you haven’t yet discovered this little gem, make plans to do so on your next visit to Ocean’s Reach!

The park features many species of exotic and native birds — such as toucans, budgies, cockatoos, and macaws — along with a duck pond and enclosures for lemurs and monkees.

The park’s general manager says the aviary began as his dad’s hobby and grew over time into a popular attraction.  Libby, a seasonal resident of the park who has been taking care of the birds for more than 25 years, offers a fun and informative parrot show during season, frequently welcoming back guests who return year after year.
Best of all, it’s free!  Just park on the grass outside the gate and walk in.  Located at 1119 Periwinkle Way.
