  • Nice zoo and lots of colorful birds. Typical zoo, gift shop is first thing you see. Walk around and take lots of pictures. Price is a little steep for a family attraction, but then again what isn't? Love to go on Halloween. Kids love feeding some of the animals. Parking lot attendants would be nice. Some people feel the need to take up two parking spaces.
  • Really nice little zoo! Very friendly docents
  • It is sooo Over priced!!! need more attractions or animals other than that its clean and fun
  • Fantastic day out with kids.. They loves all the animals there ... clean and friendly staffs. Love all the giraffes... colorful birds . Highly recommendation.
  • Small, quaint, quiet nice local zoo. Our 2017 zoo trips were started with Peoria, and what a great start. reminded us of our local Racine Zoo. Everyone was very friendly, park was clean. Exhibits were nice, good variety of animals. I really enjoyed the giraffe walk throughout the back half of the park! Great African area. As a zoo its nice. Compared to large zoos is not that special. But for what it is, it is fabulous!
