Cosley Zoo
...a pretty wild place

Cosley Zoo is situated on five acres and dotted with ponds, this nationally recognized zoo offers an intimate experience with a large variety of domestic farm animals and native Illinois wildlife. A stroll through the barn gives visitors an opportunity to encounter a wooly llama, playful goats and a host of other animals. Discover wildlife exhibits, with their shady expanses which immerse you in natural habitats for White-tailed Deer, Red Fox, Three-toed Box Turtles, a Black-crowned Night Heron and a collection of other animals.
