Phillips Park and Zoo in Aurora, IL

One of our favorite local parks is Phillips Park and Zoo in Aurora, IL. This is about 45 minutes west of Chicago.

It’s a huge piece of land and it’s not what you expcet. It is located right along side of the Fox River in a huge wooded area.

The park has a huge wooded area with picnic tables, the free zoo, a little museum, a HUGE play ground, a splash park for the little kids 10 and under, a local pool and of course is all located along the Fox River with the bike path that runs through the area. They even play free movies outside during the summer months!

The zoo is small, only a handfull of animals and it is free. It’s not a huge zoo and will not take you a day to walk through. Only maybe an hour or two, but we love it! We will start in the zoo area and then end up walking through to the park and wooded areas over to the river. We always get great photos and the kids are worn out by the time we are finished. We bring swim suits or extra clothes so they can play in free splash park on the way back to the car.
