Crews test rides at Kiddie Park ahead of opening at San Antonio Zoo


SAN ANTONIO – The “inner child” of construction workers was caught on camera as they tested rides at the relocated and soon-to-open Kiddie Park.

The crew has been making final touches before the beloved landmark reopens at the San Antonio Zoo.

“As you can see from the video, Kiddie Park brings out the inner child in all of us,” said Tom Morrow, president and CEO of the San Antonio Zoo.
