Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium

Glacier Bay Landing

Omaha, NE

The two-acre redevelopment near the north entrance will be home to the new “Glacier Bay Landing” attraction. This Pacific Northwest themed-destination will satisfy the increased demand for visitor amenities due to the new and future exhibits opening in that region of the zoo. The area will include a new concessions building, a sweet shop serving cold treats, and an open-air pavilion for hosting outdoor events. A play area for children will feature a lighthouse play structure and outdoor shaded seating areas for guests. Along the main path, the outdoor space will be punctuated by a retention pond featuring a floating plane to complete the theme.
