Over 5,000 people were in the park on Tuesday, August 14. Much of the attendance was due to the excitement created around what the zoo is doing to make things more accessible.
Dr. Jen Smith, LEND Director, said, “We walked around the zoo with one of our occupational therapists who has done an amazing job designing a map to identify some of those areas (areas that might be overwhelming for kids with disabilities), just so that the families can be prepared for what they’re going to experience at the zoo.”
