What exactly IS your paper? I beleive the monorail but don't beleive there will be a rainforest or volcano. There could be I just don't think there will.

This was all stated in the press release yesterday about the parks proposed 5yr plan, or just what they are thinking about puting in. You can read it in the press release from a link on the main page.

Yeah, I saw that today in an article in the Akron Beacon Journel. Looks like if they could pull this park all together they have themselves a really good park.

I think that this will be annoying because of the long name, but I guess I don't have to worry with is website, because most people will just call it SFWoA.

A rain forest? I understand the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo has an indoor rain forest that would knock your socks off... and SFWOA is building one, too?

(P.S. You Clevelanders out there, you know who you are. Is this true? Have you experienced it?)

Lynch: if you are asking about the rain forest at the zoo i have been there. its nice but extremely hot, and humid but alot of fun and educational. it would be a great addition for families and such.
About everything else most of those plans are just rumors w/ very good chances of happening, since Gary Story said all of them. nothing is really official till it gets built.

Lynch, The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo does indeed have an indoor rain forest however when I visited in '98 it did not knock my socks off, not even close. The extra admission to get in (in addition to the zoo's admission) and odd location really didn't work to well for me. Also, that zoo is really, really weird. It was one of the worst layouts I have ever seen, like a bad RCT park!

Hopefully SFWOA will create a better experience. I'm already loving the idea of a monorail and volcano!

I used to live a few blocks from the Cleveland Zoo. The Rainforest is indeed one of the most unique zoo attractions I've been in. Of course it's hot and humid... it is supposed to simulate a rain forest.

The thing that is most cool about it is the mix of weird plants and animals you aren't used to seeing. It's certainly not something I go to every year, but it's still very cool.

The zoo in general has undergone many changes over the last twenty years. It once had a spectacular aquarium that was destroyed in a fire. Monkey Island was one of the most unique features of its kind.

The layout is odd, but keep in mind that this is an urban zoo, only a few miles from downtown. It never had the benefit of long-range planning. Thank God for the trams that carry you about, especially to the area where the cat and primate building is up the hill!

The Africa area was a field for a very long time, but now serves as a "natural" habitat. The wolf exhibit is fairly new.

Overall, it's a pretty good facility for being owned by the local park district. I haven't been to a zoo yet that offered more variety, though I did like Portland's lush vegetation around the attractions.
