    Liberty Park is home to Tracy Aviary, one of the Best Places to Visit in Utah

    Want to see native … and not-so-native… wildlife? Liberty Park is home to Tracy Aviary. In one of the largest bird parks in the country, 135 species of birds can be seen across just over seven acres. Another cool fact? Committed to having a positive impact on the environment, Tracy Aviary introduced solar panel trees that are painted to match the colors of flamingos. In addition to these fowl friends, the pack is also full of colorful plants and trees that produce a rich abundance of bugs and small animals. (It’s also a popular place for people to walk their dogs!)

  • Looking for a really unique Utah vacation ideas? Just stop by Liberty Park on any Sunday. For over two decades, Liberty Park has been home to the Salt Lake City “drum circle.” This is definitely something to be aware of when exploring the must see places in Utah. Depending on your perspective, you will either want to plan your trip to Liberty Park on Sunday or intentionally avoid the park on that day. Hundreds of people gather on the hill, dancing to the beat of the drums and “flowing” with their hula hoops. Many people are selling handmade artwork and jewelry. It’s a rather unusual site compared to the typical expectation for conservative Utah. While there are many children and teens who attend and participate, it’s not necessarily considered “family-friendly event” by some. While all of the beauty and attractions are available on Sundays, it’s definitely something to be aware of.

Whether you choose to embrace your inner bohemian free spirit side on a Sunday afternoon, or would rather choose another day to take part in the beautiful wildlife and attractions, be sure to ride the US Bus Tour to Liberty Park. Discover for yourself why it’s one of the best places to visit in Utah!
