Brought my 3 year old there. At 10:30 they fed the sea lion which was very entertaining. Lots of things to see. Would definately reccomend.

This place was great. There were many animals in this zoo that I had not seen before. Up and close enclosures and well maintained. I would return to this zoo again. The employees in the gift shop were very helpful too. We looked at everything and it took us about an hour and half.

For this size of town, the zoo has quite the variety of animals. The rain forest is nice. I just wish they would do something huge for the big cats. Seems like they have the smallest area of all the animals at the zoo!

They have a pretty good zoo going on for the area. Enough to look at for about a half a day. They have a pretty decent variety of animals.

In central Illinois there are a handful of zoos and this one ranks right in the middle. You can spend a couple hours here, let the little ones pet some goats and see the nice primates on display. The cost is just right for what you get. Comparing the other nearby zoos I'd say that Peoria is nicer with more... More

The Miller Park Zoo in Bloomington, IL is a zoo that is just the right size. Not to take anything away from larger zoos, but sometimes something a bit smaller is welcome. You can see just about everything in this zoo in a couple of hours, and the entry fee ($5.00 per person when we visited) is very reasonable. It’s... More

This is a small/medium zoo. A tour will only be about one hour to hour & half.Many unknown or rare species. Each cage will have a rating such as rare or endangered. Many of the animals were still or very inactive. Possibly it was the time of day. Being able to pet the billy goats was probably my most enjoyable... More

Try to feed the birds, touch the turtles, and hang out with the roos! You'll be able to walk the whole thing within a couple hours, and it's great for kids in the summer because there's a playground and water park next door.

If you haven't been in a while, go! The zoo improves every year. Educational, fun, tons of animals and lots of information. Kids and adults will have a great time. What a bargain!

We went to Miller Park Zoo and enjoyed it very much. It is very small but nice. We only spent about an hour there but we have a one year old so didn't stay and play on playground or splash pad. If he was older we would have packed a picnic lunch and stayed longer. Free parking also. Will go... More
