Some general impressions. Okay, well, the Crandon Park Zoo is located on Key Biscayne, in the Southern end of Grandon Park. 25 acres of zoo. It started back in 1947 when a traveling road show, animal show, disbanded and they sold their animals to Dade County. Metro-Dade County. There were a couple monkeys, a green monkey, a rhesus monkey, two black bears. There was one other animal there too. But they put up some temporary cages on the beach and kind on park.
