A well cared local zoo where children can interact with the animals. A low price that most families can afford. Special events during the year.

Is it Brookfield Zoo or Lincoln Park zoo? No. But it's a nice place to visit, especially if you have kids. Very manageable, and you don't have to walk 20 miles. A nice attraction in this area. By the way, before our first visit years...More

You do not have to be a resident...I see someone copied the non resident prices above. Still a great deal and fun place to take your kids or grandkids.
