The Splash Pad would be a small water park added into the zoo grounds. Zoo director Joe Clawson said they would incorporate one admission for both the splash park and the zoo. They're hoping to increase the time people spend at the zoo and make the zoo more of a destination for people who travel long distances to visit.
Monroe city council approved and allocated money for the splash park last October.
Since then, zoo officials have been working on finalizing a proposal to get bids from construction companies to build the attraction.
That proposal to send the project out for a bid will be presented at Tuesday's city council meeting for final approval.
Officials say the bid process could take 60 days, then construction will begin immediately.
Clawson says he hopes the splash park will be ready for this summer.
