Congrats to Phillips Park Zoo's new manager, Margaret Bowen!
Phillips Park Zoo is an Auroran icon with its park facilities, including pavilions, playgrounds, beautiful sunken garden and zoo.
This is a great place to visit. I have been going there there since I was a kid.
I have great memories of visiting all the animals (loved seeing Judy the bear) and ice skating where the elks are now and much more!
Phillips Park Zoo is another reason why I love Aurora so much!
