As a boy I would beg my mother to take me to see the birds in the Aviary in Southampton, I grew up and took friends children etcetera to the Aviary, then the council got rid of it!!! I was furious, the Aviary was free to visit and enhanced the beauty of the park it was situated in,getting rid of it was a borderline crime! ... This is a review of Victoria park in Portsmouth,,, The park has a magnificent aviary!! Very similar to the old Southampton one , I've read another review written by a resident of Portsmouth saying the council wants rid of the Aviary!! This will be a mistake!! The Aviary is the best feature in Victoria park, the people of Portsmouth will really miss it when it's gone, the park is lovely, I hope Portsmouths people know about the council trying to get rid of the Aviary, coming from Southampton you hear rivalry with Portsmouth, I think its a bit silly.. But I always point out Pompeys pluses, the piers and the aviary in Victoria park are always top of the list.. They will really miss it if it goes.
