I've got the new website up and I'm now putting in the content. As I'll be going back and adding extra info to certain pages over time, instead of making a new thread about the updates, etc, I'll just keep adding to this thread to make it easier. Flamingo Park Zoo & Ocean World Luckily, for some of the Zoo's early beginnings, I can refer to a book Francis Hick wrote called 'Zoo Lady'. It's a very interesting read, as I visited the Zoo quite a few times in the early years ('60's) when the Zoo was still tidy, neatly lawned and was devoid of anything remotely 'rollercoaster'. The only rides to be had was via a fairground near the Children's Farm. In my mind I can visualise where a lot of the features and animals were even though there's been a lot of years and changes since. Some of the animals got moved around in the 70's, but I can still recall where they were originally. bizarre! (considering how old I am now!) I know quite a few of the people mentioned, so it's quite a nostalgic journey as I read through the book. Btw.. I'd like to know how many of you visited the Zoo in the 60's/70's..
