A Bloomington/Normal entity is getting ready to close the books on another record breaking year.
Administrators at the Miller Park Zoo in Bloomington have continued to be pleasantly surprised by the continued record turnout for the Zoo after they set an attendance record last year. Superintendent Jay Tetzloff says they could end the year with over 120,000.
According to Tetzloff, the record breaking year of 2016 was great, but he wondered if even adding flamingos would be enough for the zoo to rebound and meet the five-percent attendance spike they anticipated in their master plan.
Tetzloff also serves as the Bloomington Parks Director and says most of the areas of their parks system is up in attendance and participation.
