Best kept secret in Aurora! Been going here for years. It’s free and a quick fun little trip to see animals.

Very nice rescue area for birds. Great that it's free. It certainly needs more volunteer help which I imagine is not easy to find. Nice playground & a little lake there, lots of picnic tables. Parking was easy. Overall a nice quick visit for me & my 8.5 yo daughter.
This zoo is small but so fun. Great for a few hours of exploring with my kiddos. Stroller friendly. I really enjoyed that the majority of the animals were there because they were rescued from the wild for one reason or another. The zoo also has a great playground!
