As if the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden didn't already have one of the best family deals in town, the deal is just about to get a little sweeter!! The Zoo is planning to begin expansion in the spring of 2014 which will include the addition of seals and sea lions, with the exhibit to closely resemble that of Pier 39 in San Francisco. Also planned will be a new 3 acre children's area with interactive and educational activities. The Zoo spans across both Richland and Lexington counties.
The Zoo offers not only a great atmosphere for the little ones, but I have come to realize how much I have not lost my inner child! I not only enjoy watching my daughter interact with the animals and exhibits, but find myself relaxed and am able to escape reality for a bit. The best part about a membership at the Zoo is that you can go later in the afternoon, and get good exercise in 1-2 hours without feeling like you have to rush and see everything! Within earshot of the Zoo the West Columbia real estate market just across the river offers a variety of homes for all lifestyles, but the real estate market has been changing rapidly as growth towards the Northwest of Columbia pushes onward, with builders thriving with the expansion like Mungo homes is doing with Edenbrook, in Irmo (within walking distance of Lake Murray Elementary). Many families are moving into the area sending their children to some great schools in the Lexington/Richland Five areas, and will surely be very excited for what the Riverbanks Zoo and Garden has to offer in the next 3-5 years!
