Reviewed June 1, 2012

This is a nice small zoo where the animals are well taken care of. This is a very good zoo to take your children.

“Great little zoo and farm”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

This is a great little zoo and far especially for ages 8 and under, but older kids and adults like it too. Also, they are expanding and adding new exihibits!

“Very convenient”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

This little gem is kind of hidden on a small arterial road at the edge of Wheaton. Do not go there expecting to see a Brookfield zoo. It is a small, almost more of a farm. It is great for the little ones as there is not too much walking. There is also a small play area with a big red railroad caboose the kids can climb on. Very reasonable admission. One of the other reviewers said they had a problem with parking, I never did. I suppose if you go on a sunny Sunday afternoon in June it could get a little crowded. Admission is very cheap and the parking is free.

“Great family place- especially with little children.”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

Great family place. Good number of things to do and see, and there is enough that little children can do hands on, or get close up enough that they enjoy the experience. Friendly help, and pretty place.
