This is a very nice zoo given the size of the community. Its located in a nice park with playground equipment, snack shop, and makes a nice family outing

Miller Park Zoo is very small. It will only take you about 1-2 hours max. to see everything. However, the exhibits are very well done, and there is a surprisingly range of animals here. Perhaps the best things to see is the snow leopard exhibit (two adults, two cubs). It isn't very crowded on weekdays so it's a nice and... More

The zoo itself isn't that costly but you will find out why. The animals are hardly ever present in their exhibits or you can't see them. The park outside the zoo is more appealing than the actual zoo. You are better off skipping the zoo and heading to a library to read about animals or just take yourself to Chicago... More

Came down here on my day off of work not knowing what to expect. It's a smaller zoo but there are plenty of animals. Despite the cold rainy weather many of the outdoor animals were outside including the snow leopards, amur tiger, and red pandas. The seals were active as was the river otter. The indoor exhibits had plenty too... More

He strode around the place like he owned it, pointing the animals, patting the goats and having a blast. He slept very soundly that night, don't think we had to use the... More

Visited today with our daughter who is a freshman at Illinois State University. Weren't expecting much but were immediately impressed by the Wallaby Walkabout and continued to be impressed by all of the exhibits. Sure, not a ton of animals but some cool ones we don't see at too many other zoos such as singing dogs, reindeer, and the original... More

Small zoo yet very many different animals to enjoy. From reindeer to Longhorns to Tigers and Snow Leopards. This zoo delivers on the variety of animals. There's a red panda, Sun Bear, Wallaby and a beautiful Cockatoo. Many more but enjoyed walking through the zoo since it has been years since I have last visited.
