  • My niece had fun but there was a lot of the park under construction. And pay $5 to feed a giraffe a piece of lettuce and sweet potato (kind of a rip off)
  • This was a nostalgic trip. Went to see the new lion cubs and boy are those sisters super cute!! Unfortunately the glass that lets you get right next to them is clouded and dirty making it horrible for pictures. Over the years the expansions and enclosures have gotten so much better and animal-friendly. So bummed to miss the Australian walk-thru as it was closed the day we were there. :/ The old entrance building seems kind of sad. We took our obligatory pics with the front lion statues though!
  • Awesome place to take kids. Zoo keepers and volunteers were very friendly and knowledgeable. Activities and playground area for kids. Also noticed some picnic tables. Definitely bringing a picnic lunch next time
  • It's just okay. Animal enclosure are extremely small in spite of reasonable size of zoo space. Not highly maintained nor has huge collection.
  • Wonderful zoo for a city the size of Peoria. Make sure to check out the African exhibits.
