Finally, the Zoo is open!

Closed for the season in late Fall, this past Friday, March 1st, the John Ball Zoo opened for the 2013 season.

Our news partner, WZZM TV13, reported the Zoo will be open from 10 am to 4 pm during this early part of the season. And admission is discounted. It costs $5 for adults and $4 for children from ages 3 to 13.

It's such a great place for you and the entire family.  You'll find mountain lions, snow leopards, chimpanzees and much more.

In the off-season, the Zoo never sits still, and they have been especially busy on  improvements and changes that are exciting, including a renovated bear exhibit that is expected to be finished in May.

Enjoy, everyone.  It's going to be a great ZOO season!
