Over the next few years you'll start to see the John Ball Zoo looking different.

WOOD-TV reports that the zoo will be closing a month early for the season to begin the work on adding more exhibits and animals. The zoo's CEO says

...we have only so much time we can work in the winter.

In addition to new animals the zoo also plans on having the following done:

  • Widened entry
  • 18-acre playground
  • New parking lot in back of zoo

You can also expect more fundraisers to help raise money for all of these upgrades coming to John Ball Zoo.

According to the hours & admission on the website, the last day is Sunday, November 3rd.
