We Want Your Input!

The Park and Zoo is putting together a long-term plan for improvements to our playground. We have been working with Basterfield and Associates to develop a draft plan for reworking the layout of the playground and pathways to improve the area's accessibility and cohesiveness. We're holding public information meetings and would love to have your input. Please join us at the Rotary Education Centre (just inside the front gates of the zoo) from 5 - 7 pm this Tuesday Nov 7 or from 10 am - 12 pm on Sunday Nov 12.
