Built by the Junior League of Peoria, in collaboration with Peoria Park District and Peoria Zoological Society, The Peoria PlayHouse will be a hands-on, interactive children’s museum. It will be a place where children, along with their families, will dream, explore, and learn through play in an accessible, gender neutral, constantly evolving, and fun environment.
The Peoria PlayHouse will be located in the historic Glen Oak Park Pavilion building within Glen Oak Park and adjacent to Peoria Zoo. The Peoria PlayHouse and Peoria Zoo will collaborate to provide a full-day destination for families in our region.
