Fort Wayne's biggest tourist attraction is opening and they will share many new features.   The Children's Zoo will be opening Saturday April, 26th.

The Australian Adventure has a new entrance much closer to the front of the park.  There is a new train station, ice cream shop, and upgraded restrooms.

This is just the first phase of the project though.

All the upgrades have been made possible by donations.  So far, $5 million dollars have been collected.

The Zoo still needs about $2 million dollars before the Australian Adventure Campaign upgrades can be completed.
