Lions and tigers and giraffes, oh my! The Peoria Park District is proud to have the Peoria Zoo as one of the great facilities available to people of all ages who live, work, and play in Peoria. The Zoo is home to unique animals from all over the world and is open to the public 360 days a year. Even during the winter, animal lovers can visit the Zoo to see Amur tigers and Sichuan takins frolicking in the snow! The Zoo also offers many neat behind-the-scene tours and is a great place to host birthday parties, weddings, and corporate events.
Peoria Zoo strives to educate and raise public awareness and commitment to conservation. Our visitors, staff and volunteers will be treated with the utmost respect and we will strive to make their connection with the zoo as enriching as possible. Our animals are ambassadors for wildlife conservation and we will promote innovations to achieve the highest standards of animal care. We will make connections through education so that people will make the choices and changes needed to save our natural resources. Our programs and practices will be based on achieving the maximum possible conservation potential.
