Riverbanks Zoo and Garden has topped 1 million annual visitors again.
The zoo this week announced it had 1,000,224 visitors in its fiscal year, which ended June 30. In past decade, the zoo’s annual attendance has hovered in the 800,000-900,000 range. Reaching 1 million is considered a very good year.
Riverbanks also passed the 1 million mark in the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2002. If the numbers are broken down by calendar year, Riverbanks hit 1 million in 2009 and 1990.
