Niabi Zoo in Coal Valley is by far one of the jewels of the Quad Cities.  I don't know too many areas of our size that have a zoo of such quality. When my son was younger he loved going to Niabi, especially for Boo at the Zoo around Hallowe'en.

Tomorrow, Saturday, April 14th, Niabi Zoo opens for another season with more new animals and some renovations as well.

Admission to the zoo is $9 for adults and $6.50 for kids. Parking is $3.

You can get a discount with the return of the Zooseum pass. Learn more here.
