A new and improved Entry Village features 10 new ticket windows and an additional queuing space that streamlines entry into the Zoo.  Amenities such as more family style restrooms and more storage space for strollers and wheelchairs, as well as a calming room for guests with developmental disabilities were constructed to improve the visitor experience. Also included in this project was an expansion of the elephant yard, rain water capture and re-use in the existing Swan Lake, and roof repairs to the Elephant House roof. The Elephant House was built in 1906, and stands today as the world’s largest and oldest complete-concrete animal building.
