We pop in here every couple of years when passing through the area. Our kids like the zoo and playgrounds. It's not one of the greatest zoos we've ever been in, but given the fact it's far from major urban cities (and it's free) - you can't go wrong! Zoo has a small collection of large and exotic animals, and... More

Drove through the park on a beautiful sunny day. Stopped to walk through the zoo area which looked clean and the animals, who were all sleeping at the time, looked well cared for. Did have a mama buffalo snort at us when we got to close to the fence where her baby was standing. Lots of families having picnics -... More

We went here on a very pleasant Sunday afternoon specifically for the hiking trails. They are very well groomed with wood mulch and we were able to get in our 10K steps just walking from one end to the other. Along the trail there are places to stop and sit to rest if needed and you cross some bridges/streams. They... More

Stumbled upon this park when driving around Chippewa Falls. What a great surprise! There is a free walk through zoo and a huge duck pond. Had a great time just wondering around.

We met some family members with teens at the zoo. Not very good signage, but by luck we made a loop through the whole park before parking and finding the zoo. The cages were relatively large. Kind of wondered where the animals would go when it was twenty below zero. The petting zoo sold food pellets for a quarter, and... More

What a gem! If you are coming through, stop and at least drive through. The views are stunning. Picnic area's for you, and a zoo for everyone. It's all free too!

The park is free and open to the public. There is a small zoo with a children's petting area. The park has some nice picnic areas, nature walks and an educational area. A real treasure for all to enjoy.

If you are visiting Chippewa Falls, make sure you add Irvine Park to your list of "Must See Places" You never find free zoo's around anymore, so it's really nice to take your whole family and not spend a dime. They also have a petting zoo for the kids. It's very lovely.

I grew up in Chippewa Falls and frequented the park for many years. After moving from the area, I always try to make a visit to the Irvine Park when back in the area. This is a great place to take the kids, with many things to see an do. The upgrades they've made over the past several years are... More
