Cleveland Metroparks Zoo to expand bike parking

From The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo will be installing racks for 350 bikes at the Zoo entrance, hopefully in time for spring and Earth Day. The racks will be located in the Hippo Lot, just behind the main ticketing booth. ClevelandBikes has been pleased to offer bike parking with the Ohio City Bicycle Co-Op during EarthFest at the Zoo and have urged that more bike parking should be a permanent element at the zoo. This is an exciting project. ClevelandBikes has also pointed out to builders and developers that cycling makes good business sense, providing credits for sound environmental design and construction. The Zoo, which shares the commitment to environmentally sound design practices, will use the bike parking to meet LEED certification in the design/construction of the new elephant exhibit area, which will quadruple the space for African Elephants, a site to be open in 2010 or 2011.
