ASHEBORO, N.C. (AP) -- The North Carolina Zoo is ready to reopen after a four-day closing due to this week's winter storm.
One of North Carolina's most visited attractions resumes its regular schedule Saturday morning. The zoo had been closed for four days due to frigid temperatures and icy roads leading to the Asheboro park as well as ice-covered walkways inside the park.
The zoo's regular winter operating hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
Most state parks and recreation areas reopened Friday, but a number of parks have trails and facilities that are still closed due to icy conditions.
The state's three coastal aquariums at Fort Fisher, Pine Knoll Shores and Roanoke Island reopened Friday. The state Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh is also open.
