Visitors to Grand Rapids’ John Ball Zoo will now be able to get up close and personal with some swimming tigers! (You’ll be behind glass, it’s totally safe.)

The zoo unveiled new features of its Tigers of the Realm exhibit on Monday, including the River Realm and Tiger Trail.

The second phase off the expansion grows the tiger habitat by 2,000 square-feet!

Construction of the new tiger exhibit began in October of 2013, with the first phase opening in summer of 2014, and the second phase opening just this week.

John Ball Zoo is open daily throughout the summer from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.
