The Nature Park
Part of the Shell Factory area is the Nature Park. You can spend hours walking around this 4+ acres park, looking at hundreds of animals from exotic birds to alligators and even a rescued cow!
Throughout the park, you have many opportunities to touch a variety of animals. The bird sanctuary was my entire family’s favorite part because you literally are walking through an area getting upclose with peacocks, tortoise, iguanas and birds. One bird took a liking to my dad and sat on his shoulder as he walked around. Such a cool sight to see!
TIP: Be prepared to spend several hours here. You can even plan a lunch *several places to eat
