Roosevelt Park Zoo Opens

Posted: Updated:

It's the day of the year that says summer is just around the corner -- Roosevelt Park Zoo opened it's doors for the season this morning.

Crowds gathered today to check out all of the animals that staff have been preparing for weeks.

The weather may not have been perfect on, but the Zoo Director says it just feels good to be in full swing again.

(David Merritt, Zoo Director) "It's great. This is what we live for. To be open to the public, to have people here, to entertain, and educate at the same time, and to watch people enjoy their zoo."

The zoo will be open from 10 am to 6 pm every day through the end of summer.
