Re: Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium

Anybody know if the area around the new amphitheater is open yet? On the website it says June 2017. I'm speaking of the kid's adventure trail and such. Greg From the World Herald: "The Adventure Trails and Conservation Academy will both open June 30, more than a month ahead of schedule."

I don't really like the blank wall of the building facing east, but much better than an empty lot. Like I mentioned above, still curious to see how this looks from 480.
