The zoo has had a lot of "improvements" and "renovations" over the last 5+ years. I personally don't like what they have done. There use to be a Wendy's there, but it was replaced with a high priced food court. The monkeys, chimps, etc seem to take up half of the zoo and many of the other animals seem squeezed into where they have been for years. The North American exhibit needs enlarged, if for no other reason in particular but especially the bears who need a larger habitat. At least the animals aren't stuck in cages on on concrete; they have trees, grass and water to swim in.
