The Henson Robinson Zoo was built in 1968–1970 on the eastern shore of Lake Springfield to serve the population of Central Illinois and opened in 1970.
The Springfield Park District's Henson Robinson Zoo began as an advocacy act by contractor Henson C. Robinson of Springfield. The city of Springfield was reluctant at first in implementing this proposal; but in 1967, the mayor and city council set aside and donated a tract of land to the Springfield Park District.
