Best of Peoria

Often referred to as a “jewel of the Midwest,” Wildlife Prairie Park encompasses 1,800 acres of prime Illinois prairie and more than 150 animals, including 50 species native to Illinois. It’s also home to a sculpture walk, butterfly habitat, a disc golf course, and over 20 miles of well-maintained mountain biking, hiking, trail running, XC skiing and snow shoeing trails.

The park hosts unique events like the Olde English Faire, and offers numerous education programs for schools, scouts and others. Grab a seat on the Prairie Zephyr for a relaxing train tour, or book the Santa Fe train caboose for a unique overnight excursion!
