  • The zoo is very disappointing nowadays. It was better many years ago. The attractions aren't very good and there is limited animals. The price is high for a family too. I woild rather drive for a better zoo which i will be doing from now on.
  • 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!
  • Love the redesign that they did about ten years ago. The Africa exhibit is really nice and so is the Australian walk about
  • Nice, clean and very informative. Grandson loved it, so much we went around it twice
  • The animals that needed water to cool off didn't have any water. There was no shade for the animals to get out of the hot Sun. Most the animals were not out.They looked depressed and inactive.
