Lehigh Valley Zoo Facilities Master Plan

Located within the scenic 1,100-acre Trexler Nature Preserve, Lehigh Valley Zoo is home to more than 250 animals and hosts more than 100,000 guests annually. As a partner with Spillman Farmer Architects, Langan planners and landscape architects lead several public workshops and staff planning sessions to help the Zoo focus on enhancing visitor experience and determining future facilities and expansion direction. Based on the workshop input, the master planning team developed a prioritized list of potential improvements and recommendations. Major recommendations included: revised ADA compliant entry plaza; new indoor exhibit spaces; improved ADA circulation routes; way finding and informational signage improvements; and additional guest services facilities.
