John Ball Zoo opens March 1

Fish at John Ball Zoo

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) One sure sign that spring is approaching is when John Ball Zoo opens its gates. This year, they’re opening for the season on Sunday, March 1!

Some animals will be outside during cold weather, but the zoo has plenty of indoor areas to explore. One of them is the Living Shores Aquarium. Inside, you can see plenty of fish, sharks, eels, and everyone’s favorite: the penguins!

A fun behind-the-scenes experience takes place every Wednesday at 1:30 p.m., when zoo staff and volunteers clean the aquarium and feed the fish. Check it out!
