So... my Chicago born and raised kids have been to the fabulous big city zoos several times. Although impressive, they leave me feeling exhausted, broke, and well....annoyed . I am also a little unsure if the animals are too happy. This beautiful little zoo is...More

The zoo is well laid out and there is much to see here. For adults, maybe not. I have seen most of these animals in the wild.

Yes for now, but city council is making a rule change very soon. Dogs must be on a leash at all times. Great park and zoo to visit.
