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 continues 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.

Click here for a full list of the modifications.

  • 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.

  • Per current Illinois and CDC Guidelines, we kindly ask you to wear a mask if you are unvaccinated,  or if you are unable to safely physically distance while you are visiting our buildings. Also, please wear your mask while visiting the Aussie Walk-About and Tropics building (since certain animal species are also susceptible to COVID).  Guests with preexisting health conditions unable to wear a mask/face covering for medical reasons are exempt.

  • Thank you for your understanding.
