The beloved national icon, Jurong Bird Park, will welcome its final guests on 3 January 2023, exactly 52 years after its opening in 1971, as its avian residents and staff begin preparations to move to a brand-new home in Bird Paradise at Mandai Wildlife Reserve. Come and relive your fondest stories of Jurong Bird Park and create more memories at one of Singapore’s pioneer wildlife parks from 3 September 2022 till 3 January 2023, as we embark on A Flight To Remember to celebrate Jurong Bird Park’s legacy and rich heritage.
The park is offering $10 admission for local residents, so as many as possible can visit before the final day of operations on 3 January 2023.

Jurong Bird Park’s last day of operations will be on 3 January 2023 but it’s not goodbye, it’s see you later! Come capture lasting memories at the park entrance with a re-creation of the park’s old cuckoo clock tower, which doubles as a countdown timer to the park’s final day of operations. Guests can also contribute their favourite memories of Jurong Bird Park to a ‘living’ Memory Wall at the Penguin Coast and look back on 51-years of history. Visitors can also bring a piece of Jurong Bird Park home, with limited-edition merchandise such as Jurong Bird Park-themed terrariums and medallions.
Guests are also invited to explore Jurong Bird Park through the eyes of Jurong Bird Park’s dedicated team with a staff-curated trail and also look forward to the launch of a Nostalgic Signature Tour in November, where seasoned guides guide you through the park’s storied history. Bookings for the tour will open on 19 October 2022. Also launching in November is a nostalgic dining experience with traditional pushcarts selling local hawker fare and carnival activities to raise the festive spirit.

Opened in 1971, Jurong Bird Park is Asia’s largest bird park, offering a 20.2-hectare hillside haven for close to 3,500 birds across 400 species, of which 20 per cent are threatened. The bird park is famed for its large and immersive walk-in aviaries such as Lory Loft and the recently revamped Waterfall Aviary. Other unique exhibits include Penguin Coast and Pelican Cove. Jurong Bird Park sees approximately 850,000 visitors annually.
Committed towards conservation, the bird park is the first in the world to breed the Malayan black hornbill (1995) and the twelve-wired bird of paradise (2001) in captivity for which it received the Breeders’ Award from the American Pheasant and Waterfowl Society. Jurong Bird Park is part of Wildlife Reserves Singapore and is the only park in the Asia Pacific to have an Avian Hospital.
