Lion House Renovations

 
     
Big Cats Falls

This new Zoo experience creates a stunning landscape of lush habitats and waterfalls where guests can come face to face with 12 endangered big cats from around the world, including three new playful snow leopard cubs, three adorable new puma kittens and a beautiful new black jaguar cub.

The recently completed construction of the Big Cat Falls exhibit was a joint effort of the Philadelphia Zoo and the City of Philadelphia working concurrently to renovate the former Lion House exhibit. The Zoo's part of the project included the renovation of the existing Lion House structure and the removal of the Lion and Tiger pools which were replaced with expanded exterior exhibit areas for all the cats. The City of Philadelphia's role in this project included providing and installing approximately $600,000 of landscaping for the Big Cat Falls exhibit. The landscaping included species of plants and trees that were indigenous of the cats natural habitat.
