Sidewalk Repair to Start Aug. 16

Sidewalk Repair to Start Aug. 16

Please bear with us while we repair the sidewalk along the Zoo's main path connecting Elephant Springs to MOLA (Museum of Living Art) beginning Aug. 16. This project is expected to last four weeks and will ensure the consistency of the main path throughout the Zoo. While sidewalk construction will limit access to some parts of the path, it will not limit guests’ ability to view any animal habitats. Additional signage will ensure guests have no trouble finding their way around the Zoo. Accessibility: All open pathways will be stroller and wheelchair accessible, however wheelchair ramps to enter the front of Crocodile Cafe and MOLA will be closed off. Guests can enter these locations through the MOLA exit. Construction will take place in three phases as outlined below: 

Phase one: Guests will enter the Zoo as normal. As they continue past World of Primates, they will cross a temporary bridge that allows access to the back half of the main path connecting Elephant Springs to MOLA (Museum of Living Art).

 

Phase two: Guests will enter the Zoo as normal. As they exit the covered bridge, there will be a sign prompting them to either go left or right. Left will take them through Flamingo Bay and Crocodile Café to connect to MOLA (Museum of Living Art). Right will take them along the west loop of World of Primates to Elephant Springs and African Savanna.

 

Phase three: Guests will enter the Zoo as normal. As they continue past World of Primates, they will have access to the front half of the main path connecting Elephant Springs to MOLA (Museum of Living Art).

 

Construction is scheduled to be completed by mid-September. Thank you for your patience and support as we continue to work to improve your Fort Worth Zoo!
