FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - Work has started at Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo on building a pair of new pavilions that will be able to host a variety of events.

The zoo has been planning the pavilions for several years. One of them will have seating for about 250 people and about 150 in the other.

Zoo director Jim Anderson tells The Journal Gazette (https://bit.ly/ZhVrV6 ) the pavilions will be rented out for functions such as family reunions or company parties. Anderson says the zoo will also use them for education programs, summer camps and fundraising events.

The pavilions are costing about $1 million to build and will be in the zoo’s African Journey area.

Work on the pavilions is expected to be finished by April.
