Thanks to the generosity of Richard and Martha Widdicombe and the expert craftsmanship of Joel Grimaldi at Metal Logix, our gorgeous sign welcomes more than 100,000 visitors per year to the Utica Zoo and many hundreds of thousands of motorists passing by on the Memorial Parkway. Due to its location and eye-catching design, we receive many requests for special messages or advertisements on a near-daily basis.
However, the Utica Zoo is unable to accommodate these requests. Graphics on our sign are reserved for zoo related business, current event sponsors, or daily messaging. While we do realize that certain events may warrant a special circumstance, we are still unable to make exceptions due to the overwhelming number of requests we receive. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience our policy may cause.
