PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium is being honored by Parents Magazine.
The publication has ranked our zoo here in Pittsburgh the fourth Best Zoo for Kids for a second time.
In their listing, Parents Magazine points to the Kids Kingdom, PPG Aquarium and Water’s Edge exhibits as being both fun and educational for children.
In a statement, the Pittsburgh Zoo’s President and CEO Dr. Barbara Baker says: “Parents Magazine’s rating validates the work that we do every day to provide our visitors with a great family atmosphere as well as an opportunity to see and learn about animals. We designed Kids Kingdom to provide a balance between fun and learning and to spark a child’s imagination through interactive exhibits. Today especially it is so important for kids to learn and enjoy nature and animals as so many species are facing uncertain futures.”
Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo, the Brookfield Zoo in Illinois, the St. Louis Zoo and the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo round out the top five.
