“Fun for kid!”
Review of Cosley Zoo

Cosley Zoo
Ranked #3 of 27 things to do in Wheaton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 November 2013

I've taken my grandkids several times. I don't know who enjoys it more, me or them! Farm animals and wild animals. It's a small park - just right for the little ones. They love climbing on the caboose. And a duck pond! What more could you ask for?

If you are looking for an hour or two to spend, particularly with your young child, this is a nice recommendation. There are not a lot of animals here, but enough to keep a young child occupied for an hour or more. Close to everything in Wheaton, this is a favorite local spot. There is a small admittance fee (do not know the current rate) but primarily it is for upkeep of the animals and the zoo.

When my children were young, we would visit this zoo to see the animals. Great to have a trip to a zoo just a short distance from our home. At the holidays, they have special events, such as pumpkins for Halloween, and Christmas lights in December. Parking is available.

It's a small zoo -- perfect for your toddler to walk the entire time. They have local animals and farm animals. The bobcats are a favorite as are the ever-comical raccoons. Plan to spend an hour or two at the most.

A great zoo to visit with kids. Every season has something new to enjoy. Classes are great to participate in.
