Follies

The Bird Park has a collection of charming follies, some you can play in such as the Wendy House and others are there just to be admired. The Double Aviary was built after Philip Meigh the founder fell in love with Whaddon Manor and promptly came back and built his own version, which is now used to house cage and aviary birds. The Wendy House was found in a reclamation yard in 1981, was moved, restored and can now be found beside the main lake, next to the picnic area, complete with peafowl strutting around. Our Domed aviary houses the Kookaburras and can be found on the dam next to the main lake where, you can sit on the edge and look back across the park. There are always toys to be found inside the Wendy House, complete with a dustpan and broom....we are ever hopeful and this has to be one of the most popular places in the park for children and families alike. Follies are a very important part of the park as they form the backdrop for the birds and give the public somewhere to sit and reflect.
