The Decatur Park District’s Scovill Zoo invites you to Free Admission Thursday on June 9 from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Admission is free on Thursdays throughout the summer and fall.

Scovill Zoo is located at 71 S. Country Club Road in Decatur.

Nestled in the 62-acre Scovill Park overlooking Lake Decatur, the zoo features:

  • Four hundred animals spanning six continents
  • An endangered species carousel and Z.O. & O. Express Train

Pick up tokens in the gift shop on your way into the zoo if you plan to do the train or the carousel (or both). Pack a cooler and spend time picnicking with the family. The Scovill Oriental Garden and Sculpture Park offer a quiet spot if you need to relax.

Free Admission Thursdays run through October or until the zoo closes for the winter.
