What an excellent experience! Having been brought up around zoos in St Louis and Chicago I wasnt expecting Peoria to weigh in with anything but mediocre. But I was wrong. The zoo is large and has a wide variety of well maintained exhibits and animals. The lion/tiger exhibit is especially remarkable affording an opportunity to come to a plate glass window distance between a tiger and visitor! I just stayed at that particular exhibit for over 20 minutes marveling at how close I was to a tiger. The exhibit is the Africa exhibit and is a must see. The entire zoo is clean and well maintained. It is a definite MUST SEE for any visitor to Peoria. And it is worth coming back to as well. Nice job Peoria!!
