Zoo or aquarium?

February 22, 2010



Since Frontierland and Bubbles have closed do you think there could be more leisure facilities? It’s been suggested that a zoo or aquarium would be good for the town… What do you think?

    Like many older residents I remember Marineland (with Rocky the Dolphin) , the zoo in Happy Mount Park (with penguins, tocans and alligators), Bird Land ( I think that’s what it was called) at Heysham Head and I think there might have been a small zoo housed in the building on the Stone Jetty at one stage. So these ideas are not new, but they were popular back in the day and as a child growing up in Morecambe they provided endless entertainment year round. What Morecambe is blessed with is a great view, but in the middle of Winter or when it’s grey and wet, even the view isn’t enough to attract all but the hardiest of people. Perhaps an aquarium of some kind would be good. I once visited the Tennessee State Aquarium in Chattanooga USA, which was brilliantly planned out. Not just a building with fishtanks but an experience where you followed two river courses from source to the sea. One course followed a temperate climate route, the other a tropical climate route each with its own particular species. There were otters, crocodiles, ducks, turtles, etc and it was fabulous. Something like that for Morecambe would be brilliant but as always it’s down to investment. Something nationally or internationally recognised would be needed to attract the crowds year round I think. Is there the will or the money?
