Nice small zoo
Dec 2020 • Family
During this December 2020 you need to make a reservation to enter. The cost is free as they are selling Christmas trees. If you go at around 4:30 PM , you will see a few animals. As it gets dark you can walk through a path to see Christmas lights. We spent about 20 minutes there and enjoyed everything.

They have a tough job, compeating with two of the best zoo's in the world, but if you want to visit a nice place to see the animals... without driving a long way, this is a nice way to do it.

Best little zoo in Chicago area
Dec 2019 • Family
Fantastic exhibits native wildlife with some exotic so but the focus is definitely on Illinois animals. The Passion of this facility with all of the keepers and staff is amazing and they keep meticulous exhibits caring for these animals in extraordinary ways. This is a perfect place to come especially when you have small children that have short attention spans it doesn't take long to get through the whole zoo but it is absolutely worth every minute that you're there. There are so many hands on experiences and behind the scenes that it makes the zoo so much different than others.

Kids loved it!

This is a great way to spend a weekend afternoon. It's a little pricey for what you get but well worth it for the kids. Having a little snack shack there is great for when you don't want to pack a lunch to picnic.

Enjoyable

Visited with my four grandchildren, ages 5 to 9. It's not a place to find the usual wild and wooly animals found elsewhere but more of the more tame types maybe not seen in local neighborhoods throughout IL. Animals like sheep, cows, ducks, horses, pigs, racoons, rabbits, chickens, and deer are exhibited; the children loved them. And although they also have llamas, coyotes and bobcats, animals we see frequently here at home in Texas the zoo overall was a nice afternoon spent with grandchildren. Nice place to picnic. And they had a vertical wind tunnel type enclosure where wind was blown upwards under the children; they loved it.

This is a lovely small zoo. No exotic animals but farm animals and other animals native to Illinois.

Took my granddaughter there and she loved getting to walk in and play with the baby animals! It is a small zoo -- everything there is pint-size!

Always fun to feed the ducks

We used to take our son here all the time. It's a great experience, small zoo, informative & interactive, as well as a great place to burn off excess energy.
