As the busy summer season brings a fall slowdown, a Bloomington entity is celebrating a strong summer of attendance.
The Miller Park Zoo has had a lot happening this year and Superintendent Jay Tetzloff says it led to a good summer for attendance. He says they ended up ahead of last year's figures.
With new alligators and baby animals throughout their exhibits, Tetzloff feels that helps but he also attributes it to the positive things they are doing for their guests.
With the busy summer season now slowing down, major projects are going to start to pick up. The most noteworthy is the parking lot expansion. That essentially came to a halt for the summer but Tetzloff anticipates finishing up later in the fall season.
