About the Tropical Greenhouse
With just over 6,000sq ft (557 m2) of display area, the greenhouse features a meandering flagstone path running beside fish filled ponds, and tropical borders culminating in a spectacular waterfall. The ponds are filled with Shubunkin and Golden Orfe fish. Lush, exotic plants, water lilies and lotus add to the beauty of the greenhouse.

There are four Red-eared Slider turtles that live in a custom built pond adjacent to the waterfall. Through a partnership with the Friends of the Aviary, several species of birds are also on display.
