Elmwood Park Zoo is 16 acres of family-friendly fun, featuring  everything froDignitaries at the groundbreaking sported BIA hardhatsm jaguars, cougars, wolves,  flamingos, alpacas, bison, bald eagles, and ponies.  This popular Norristown destination was in great need of additional on-site  parking and was successful in obtaining grants from both the Redevelopment Authority of Montgomery County and State Community Revitalization program.  The  Zoo retained Barry Isett and Associates to prepare the construction plans and provide construction oversight for a parking lot expansion that  broke ground over the summer. The project included new ramps to the entrance building and parking, and seeded bio-swales with underdrains for improved stormwater management.  The new space accommodates 158 cars and eight buses, bringing the total vehicle count to 318. Bryan Smith, RLA, ASLA lead the design team while Rich Fain, CSI CCA provided construction services.
