New Immersion Zoo Opens in Valencia

New Immersion Zoo Opens in Valencia
VALENCIA  •  Bioparc Valencia  •  Ongoing

The first phase of a new state-of-the-art zoo has opened in Spain ’s third largest city.  At the $94 million Bioparc Valencia, visitors can watch antelope, zebras and gazelle gallop over the African savannah and gorillas and leopards roam a lush, bird-filled equatorial forest.  One of the most advanced zoos in Europe , the 25-acre park is home to 4000 animals from 250 species.  Plans call for a second phase to include nearly five more acres to showcase the ecosystems of South-east Asia and Central and South America . 

“Zoo immersion,” the latest in zoological park design, gives new meaning to the phrase “up close and personal.”  By reproducing vegetation, the undulating terrain of a specific ecosystem and the authentic sounds of the wild – while concealing barriers and man-made structures – the architects have replicated the habitats of these wild creatures.
