Taking in the beautiful fall colors at Cosley Zoo is a must do! Come see the animals in the crisp fall air, listen to the squeals of excitement from the children conquering the straw pyramid or finding their way through the corn stalk tunnel, and take in the thousands of pumpkins scattered on the zoo’s lawn. Children’s rides are also available.

Apples, gourds, pumpkins, cider, cornstalks, and various sizes of straw bales are available to purchase. Be sure and check out the fall merchandise in the Wild Side Gift Shop, too.

  • Regular admission rates apply
  • Fee for rides

Sponsorship opportunities available!
Contact Cosley Foundation Development Director T. J. Hicks at 630-510-5105 or tjhicks@wheatonparks.org.
