Yesterday at the Oakland Zoo in Knowland Park. The afternoon was warm and the parking lot was full. The carousel is outside the main gate and is a favorite spot for parents to take pictures of their children.
Here's the formal entrance setting the scene for the African themed presentation. The zoo was relocated to the hills in about 1950 and has been noted for its realistic environments for the animals. This is for LD in Monterey, whose grandparents took her to the zoo when she was a little girl.
