Beale Wildlife Park and Gardens is situated by the River Thames, near the village of Pangbourne in Berkshire, England. It has three main areas of attraction: the collections of small exotic animals, farm animals and birds; the landscaped gardens and woodlands; and the children’s play areas. There is also a small shop and a restaurant.
The aviaries are home to several bird species that are threatened with extinction. Most notable are the Green Peafowl, the Mountain Peacock Pheasant and the Bali Starling. There is a sucessful breeding programme, and several birds have been released back to the wild.
The park was founded in 1956 by Gilbert Beale as his own private park. He was a keen collector and breeder of peacocks and these birds still roam free in the park.
