The Peoria Park District's mission focuses on supporting the health and wellness of those who live, work and play in our District. In the face of the coronavirus outbreak, the District continue to focus on this important work.

Reopening Peoria Zoo safely and successfully requires numerous modifications, careful observation and quick action if/when modifications are necessary.

  • When you arrive; if you have tickets, please have them ready to help us keep the line moving so you can get to the good part faster.  Members, have your photo IDs and Member Cards ready. Thank you.

  • Spread the word... not germs.  All visitors (and staff) over the age of two are required to wear face covering during their visit.  Guests with preexisting health conditions unable to wear a mask/face covering for medical reasons are exempt.

  • Please honor our one-way path around the Zoo.  Stay on the path and don't cross any barriers.  They're there to protect you, our staff and our animals too!

  • Please practice social distancing by keeping 6 feet between groups.

  • The Zoo and the Safari Gift Shop will be limited to 25% capacity.

  • Thank you for your understanding.
