We did not have enough time to visit the entire park, but we did drive through and saw bison, zebra and elk. The petting zoo and small animal area was closed because it does not open until 10 AM. We were still able to see the animals through the fence. Our son liked the duck Pond. There are also peacocks... More

We went to Irvine Park a few times in the winter, but this was our first visit in the summer. We had a good time (and were slightly jealous of all the gatherings that were happening without us on the grounds.) Loved the zoo...the girls had a very close and personal view of the tigers and the hyenas. We also... More

Irvine Park is a wonderful urban park that has something for everyone. If you've got kids, I've taken my kids there many times to play on the equipment, walk by the animals, wade in Duncan Creek, picnic, etc. If you want to cross country ski, ride bike, walk, and run - you can do it all in a beautiful setting....

When my sister told me about this place she didn't do it any justice. My family and I love to watch animal's and to hike around some cool wood's. We especially like hiking along water. This place would be great for birthday parties and family reunions. We even saw a wedding there. Best of all is it's free.

Great little park to go to with kids. There is a little zoo featuring tigers, hyenas and a bear. They also have great hiking trails and lots of picnic areas!

We stopped at Irvine Park while in Chippewa Falls and just loved it! We checked out the cave they used to store beer in back in the day, we enjoyed the beautiful views and had fun watching the zoo animals. The park is very well maintained. There is not a fee for the park but there is a donation box.... More

Great scenery, wonderful zoo with a wide variety of wildlife for such a small town. Nice playground for the youngsters and a small creek meandering through the park. Areas for family picnicking are spread though out the park as well.

This park has something for everyone. We took a leisurely stroll along the river. Then rested in the shade on a grassy lawn. Finally we enjoyed the zoo - at no cost. What a wonderful place to spend the day.

Small enough to do in a day. Beautiful for a walk and enjoying the day. Animals were sleeping at the time of our visit and some were not out yet due to early season. Kids enjoyed it

My kids and I stopped here for a bit last weekend. Since it was the winter season, some of the exhibits were not open (Log house, school house). But the little zoo was open and that was fun. We walked around for quite awhile and had a really nice little hike. We will try going back in the summer when... More
