WACO, Texas —
The Cameron Park Zoo $14.5 million expansion was approved by county commissioners at a meeting Tuesday morning.
The bond will be placed on the Nov. 5 ballot but it will not raise property taxes.
The expansion includes a new veterinary and education complex, a new penguin exhibit for endangered South African black-footed penguins, and an upgrade to their hoofstock barn.
The zoo is the second most visited tourist attraction in Waco. They have 1,628 animals and 70 exhibits and it brings in $13 million each year.
