Posted: Updated:

You may see some new faces when theRoosevelt Park Zoo opens this season.

While there will be someconstruction on the zoo grounds, they're finally moving away from floodrecovery and moving toward future projects.

The penguin and otter exhibits thatwere destroyed during the flood will be open again.

The educational building iscurrently under construction and will be transformed into the bird aviary whichcould house around 100 birds. 

"The flood was actually a veryunique experience for us because it was devastating; however it gave you thatopportunity to increase our footprint. And, although it took a long time to getto where we are now, it's really exciting to finally look toward the future andlook at enhancing the zoo and continuing to make it better," says StaciKenney, Roosevelt Park Zoo.

The zoo plans to open on May 3.
