  • We were looking for things to do in Peoria on a winter afternoon. We decided to check this place out. It turned out that it was donation day, and we got in for only the cost of a donation. All the ani...  more »
  • I would not make this a special stop if you are not from the area. It's very small and they don't have many animals. My young kids, 6 years and under like the zoo. I was board to be honest but as long...  more »
  • Took my daughter in January and it was freezing!!! Went in February and there were more animals out and the weather was great. Didnt see very many animals I think due to it being cold.  more »

  • 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
  • Need to stay open later in the evening and play up the evening lights & availability to working moms & dads who want to do something relaxing with their kids after school. Possibly make a lower evening rate from 5:00 to 7:00pm.
  • It took us about 3 hours to know this place for the first time. It was quiet, relaxed and very pleasant visit. A nice option for a Sunday walk with the family.
  • 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!
