Park By JOAN SHEPARD Q The world-famous Central Park Zoo, which was last overhauled in 1934 under Parks Commissioner Robert Moses, is getting a $28 million faes lift Bulldozers have already moved in to do the job. The renovated zoo is scheduled to open in 1937, and it will have a vastly changed look, according to Parks Commissioner Henry Stern. However, he said, it will have the basic design motif of the 1934 zoo. ! "The old zoo was at least 50 years outdated," .Stern said yesterday. "It had cages which made the animals look like they were in prison. The new zoo' will be in keeping with the 1980s. It will provide a more natural habitat for the animals." Stern said the animals will be viewed from behind glass walls. The new zoo won't have lions, tigers, or elephants, but one remaining familiar feature will be the popular sea-lion pond. Prior to demolition, the resident animals were moved to the Prospect Park Zoo and to other zoos around the country, the spokesman said. The new zoo will feature three climate-controlled zones: Tropical, Temperate, and Polar. The Polar Zone's inhabitants will include penguins and Polar bears. Four 1934 buildings will remain. They will be used as a visitors' center, an animal hospital, a gift shop, and a cafeteria. Of the $28 million in renovation funds, $21.8 million comes from the city and the balance from the New York Zoological Society, which will operate the facility. While the Central Park Zoo undergoes renova tion, the Children's Zoo at 65th St and Fifth Ave. remains open daily. ,-- I '" 5i-S.- ,i b 'X & ' Li I t i-f r , Do you feel a subtle change in your appearance may make you more confident in your career your personal life?
