  • Nothing fancy but it's a great little place to just take younger kids for a couple of hours outside and not in direct sunlight the whole time.  more »
  • Cosley Zoo is small but sweet! What a great resource for the community to have a zoo right here! It's not as extensive as Brookfield or Lincoln Park Zoos, but perfect for a lovely visit with family an...  more »
  • Cosley Zoo is a short distance from my home and we don't go as often as we should. The last time we went (probably early May) most of the animals were out. Their habitats appear to be sufficient and w...  more »

  • My grandchildren and I really enjoyed seeing all of the many animals. We go there often because it's so nice and they keep adding additions of various animals as well as expanded shelters for them. I give them a five star for cleanliness, for their beautiful and creative exhibits for each animal and for the ways children interact with baby sheep, goats, pigs, rabbits, horses, cows, chickens and ducks. They also have bobcats, deer, owls, many species of birds etc. The fact that kids are free is an added bonus. Pack a lunch! They have many, many picnic tables, and they sell food and ice cream as well.
  • Took my in home daycare children here for a field trip. I paid for myself $7 to enter and the children were all free. What a bargain basically a dollar a person for us to visit here seeing I had five children with me. I love that the area is clean and stroller friendly. The children were able to pet a chicken in the chicken barn area. We enjoyed seeing all the animals up close. We did stay and eat at the snack shop area. We brought our own lunch but could buy a dessert here. Overall, I would recommend this mini farm/zoo as a go to for a summer field trip.
  • This place is amazing for all ages. It's not very big but it's a beautiful place and has very cool animals. In the winter season they have really nice Christmas trees big and small. Great place for everyone!
  • Outstanding for younger children. Our 18 month old absolutely loved it. She got to feed the ducks and chickens. Also she was able to pet many of the other ani.
  • Great place to go. Walkable for small children. No stroller needed.
