  • We visited Cosley Zoo during the day on a Tuesday afternoon. The zoo was not crowded and all kids up to 18 are free. Adults are $5. It's a very small park and relatively flat, good for walking. It's m...  read more »
  • This zoo is on the smaller side. However it is a nice place. I would say you could spend about an hour with your kids and they would have fun. 
  • This is not really a so in the traditional sense. It is a farm replica, with many local wild animals and birds. Kids can get close to suburban type critters like raccoons, fox, deer, and many birds al...  read more »
  • Kids love this place. You can feed the chickens twice a day (for a dollar each) and they think it is the best thing ever. Small, so this is more of a "quick" trip. If you wanted to, you could see the whole place in an hour or so. Not had for $5 admission.
  • I been coming here for 6 years and I think they have charged in a good way and I love the new look. Can't wait to visit again. This place is great for small kids.
  • Nice neighborhood zoo. Very clean and family friendly. Not a large variety of animals but almost everything is local which is nice
  • Great place for families with young children. We have gone here a lot with our two children (2 and 4) over the last several years and it is always a good time. Very inexpensive to visit and if you are a resident of Wheaton it is free! It takes about an hour to walk through which is the perfect amount of time for young children to be engaged. The animal there are all animals that are either farm or native to the area like ducks, chickens, cow, chickens, rabbits, deer, foxes, bob cats, owls, and more. They have a little gift shop on site and depending on the season a little cafe to get food at. In the winter they have Christmas lights up and it is a lot of fun to check out. A must visit if you live in the area with your children.
  • For a cute visit and short walking distance a five dollar bill (for adults and children get in free) you can enjoy an afternoon at the zoo. They have wildlife from the area, barn animals, and the best part of the zoo the birds. The only downfall was the gift shop.
