Are there elephants at the MN Zoo?

New Zoo. Since the zoo opened, in 1978, it has often been faulted for its distinct lack of such beasts, the sort that visitors to many other zoos take for granted: elephants, rhinoceroses, and yes, lions and gorillas.

How did Como Park get its name?

Como Park began its life as a public park in 1873. Lake Como is named after the famous Lake Como in the Italian Alps. Though it seems logical that Perry named the lake after his birthplace, it is McKenty who is credited with renaming Sandy Lake as Lake Como in 1856.
