Day at The Half Zoo

Jun 1, 2007

Today we went to the Glen Oak Zoo in Peoria, IL. We have been there a dozen times before.

I'm from Peoria and my father lived a few blocks away when he was a toddler.

The zoo was undergoing construction so they only had half the exhibits they normally have, which means about 20-30 including all the small exhibits. The kids had a good time. The adults remember all the exhibits that used to be there.

They started closing those in the 80's for the humanity of non-human animals. The zoo is a shell of what it used to be, but once construction is over it will be 3x bigger in size and hold as many animals as it ever did, but now in a new and improved humane zoo way.

For a better flavor of Illinois, I would recomend Wild Life Prairie park. Lots of hiking and buffalo!
