construction updated header for web

The Zoo broke ground on the new entrance in a private event on September 12, 2018. Read the story in our Fall 2018 issue of UPROAR.

The membership booth has moved to its new home in the parking lot near the tiger habitat and will serve as the temporary entrance to the Zoo until early 2020.

Demolition of the old entrance will begin on October 29. All visitors must now enter and exit through the temporary entrance.

It starts to feel like a real building when they pour the foundation! In the background, you can also watch the progress of the new bathrooms.

The construction crews worked on the concrete masonry of the new entrance during December and January. Next up: roof beams!

A very fast recap of setting a 59′ glulam roof beam. There are 8 of these beauties in the new entrance!

The building has framing for windows, and the plan is to install them at the beginning of April. In the meantime, interior masonry has continued.

Construction is being done on our entrance building, which will open March 2020.

Leaving a Legacy

An enhanced visitor experience featuring concierge-like amenities, personable guest service, and family care areas will rejuvenate and revitalize the zoo allowing you to enter at ease, access the gift shop and discover a wildlife adventure as you are warmly welcomed into the natural world of the Zoo.

Learn more about our new entrance.
