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.

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.

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.

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.
