  • The "new" Peoria zoo is so much more than it used to be, so if you haven't been there in the last few years you should make a visit. It is a bit pricey, but you can really turn it into a several hours...  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!
