The Glen Oak Zoo received a major facelift in the past year with the opening of the African exhibit. A beautiful boardwalk ramps up to an aerial view of the giraffes. Past the long-necked critters, you can see zebras, rhinos, and lions. Great place to sit and relax.

Make sure to visit the old section of the zoo and visit the binturongs, which I think look like fox/racoon/kitty creatures. Anyway, you'll have to make your own opinion. ^_^
