Potawatomi Zoo Entrance

South Bend, Indiana

As a part of the design-build team selected by the Potawatomi Zoo to overhaul their existing entrance, JPR led the site design efforts for the team.

One major challenge included overcoming a significant grade change that existed between the zoo entrance and the pathway leading to the zoo’s exhibits. Through detailed grading and design, JPR was able to provide a considerably improved accessible pathway.

Improvements to the zoo’s entrance included a new entrance plaza, entrance building with gift shop, a new restroom facility with family restrooms, new sub-surface stormwater runoff storage area, new lighting, and improved landscape features around the entrance.
