  • I have been here many times over the years. My children grew up enjoying the zoo. The duck pond had some benches and is fun to sit down at while eating a snack. The animals are mostly typical farm ani...  more »
  • 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...  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.

  • Kids will love coming here! In my opinion, this is the perfect place for 6 years and under. The reasoning behind my opinion is the size of the zoo. I have found that the little ones get to see everything and they aren't exhausted by the time we leave. As opposed to older children getting a little bored because they looked at everything so quickly. Highly recommend this zoo! Friendly staff and well maintained!!!
  • 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.
  • The zoo was perfect for my small children. The zoo is small enough that they weren't burnt out from walking. We feed the ducks and all the animals were available for show. I would definitely recommend to anyone.
  • 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.
  • 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.
