During the pandemic in 2020, we successfully opened the 2nd phase of our $25 million expansion debuting our giant anteaters and cheetah habitats, including a cheetah chase encounter that will open summer 2021. The first phase of our largest expansion in zoo history opened in 2019 that expanded our zoo footprint by 10 acres with giraffes, Sumatran tigers, and an indoor play structure with spider monkeys. Rated among the nation’s best zoos for Children, we have been featured on the Today Show, Time Magazine, ABC News, USA Today, Buzzfeed, CNN and National Geographic.
