The Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department and Lincoln Children's Zoo are seeking additional public input on the use of City and Zoo facilities for the Antelope Park Triangle, bounded by "A" Street, 27th Street and Capitol Parkway. The Zoo has developed a long-term plan to expand to the west, allowing for additional animal habitat areas as well as indoor and outdoor exhibit and event areas. The plan also includes a permanent structure to house Zoo School, the LPS Science Focus High School.
A public open house on the plan was held in March, and additional input is being sought through a brief survey available through June 2. The survey is available online at lincoln.ne.gov (keyword: triangle). Paper copies are available at the Parks and Recreation office, 2740 "A" Street.
The Lincoln Parks and Recreation Advisory Board is expected to provide recommendations regarding a proposed land use plan to accommodate the expansion this summer. More information on Parks and Recreation facilities and programs is available at parks.lincoln.ne.gov.
Now in its 50th year, the Lincoln Children's Zoo is home to over 350 animals. Nearly 200,000 people attend the Zoo each year. More information on the Zoo is available at lincolnzoo.org.
