Review of Phillips Park Zoo

Phillips Park Zoo
Ranked #4 of 28 things to do in Aurora
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 September 2017 via mobile

The mini zoo is free and open most of the year. The Sunken garden has beautiful foliage thus a favorite for pictorials. There are also monuments to honor fallen local soldiers. Mastodian gallery ia another quick tour you can do. Great place to stroll. My pet ❤️ coming here. FYI: Dogs are not allowed in the zoo area though .

Phillips Park Zoo and the park in general are very well maintained and beautiful. Although the zoo is small, it is great for smaller children, as they can get "up close and personal" with the animals, as the cages and walkways are well designed for that. The flowers in the Sunken Garden are simple gorgeous, and make for a well-rounded visit. The entire park is a great place for a family outing, picnic, and hiking trails around the huge park. Wild life is supported down by the Mastadon Lake, too, where more animals in their natural habitat can be viewed.

Phillips park zoo is a great location in Aurora to visit with the family. The staff are very friendly. The zoo is on the smaller side, but there is plenty to see. It's an easy walk. There is a great reptile house. Overall, I really recommend this place for a great afternoon adventure.

Great Zoo to see all the animals really up close. Animals are taken care of very well. The grounds are lovely. No matter what time of year there is always something beautiful to see.
