Kansas City Zoo: Billy Goats Gruff – Exhibit Renovation

Kansas City, Missouri

 

Taking a cue from the fairy tale of the Three Billy Goats Gruff, visitors have the opportunity to walk into the goat’s world through a series of decks that extend into their yard.

Confluence led planning efforts to renovate the Zoo’s existing Goat Exhibit, an attraction that sits adjacent to the “Discovery Barn,” intended for younger zoo visitors. Upon exiting the barn, visitors will gaze upon goats, walking bridges and the infamous trolls hiding below.

Visitors will have the opportunity to walk into the goat’s world through a series of decks that extend into their yard. In addition, improvements are also planned to the adjacent donkey exhibit to complete the visitor experience. When complete, the exhibit will provide an exciting and whimsical experience for all zoo visitors.
