We planned a weekend trip to the Chicago area due to the Brookfield Zoo having an appearance by the Kratt Brothers (various children's nature shows including Kratts' Creatures, Zoboomafoo, and Be the Creature, and Wild Kratts) and our youngest being a huge fan. We had never been to the Brookfield Zoo before and so had no idea what to expect, especially coming from a city that itself has a world-class zoo. We left very impressed. The grounds were spacious and well-kept. The animal exhibits looked to be well thought out and accommodating. We were also able to see some animals that we do not have in our Toledo Zoo.
Admission felt a bit pricey but then again, as members of our local zoo we are not used to paying single-day admission and pricing could well be the norm.
All of the children, including the 14 and 18 year old very much enjoyed the visit. We absolutely recommend!
