Thousands of people visited the Fort Worth Zoo over spring break this week — especially today to take advantage of half-price Wednesday admission. I could see some of the crowds out of my windows here in the River Plaza Tower where I have officed for over 29 years.
The Zoo has recently opened its Museum of Living Art, a collection of exotic and interesting reptiles and amphibians, which no doubt increased attendance.
I am a big fan of our zoo and was a regular there when my daughter Marissa was younger. We must have gone to the wonderful dinosaurs exhibit every weekend.
I hope all of the Fort Worth Zoo visitors, whether they be local or out-of-towners, enjoyed visiting our wonderful part of town — and wonderful city.
And I hope that all of the drivers out there are being mindful of the traffic and courteous to other drivers. It is up to each one of us to keep Fort Worth roads safe.
Enjoy this pleasant weather and spring break, if you are lucky enough to have one! I don’t, so I’d better get back to work.
