Just wondering why Lubbock doesn't have a zoo? It seems like aboutb 16+ years they were trying to raise money to build one I would love to see one built here .

I'd love to see one, too, but it's highly unlikely. The best location, if they ever decided to do something like that, could be at MacKenzie Park between Parkway Drive and Broadway. It'd be near the Fairgrounds and the Amphitheatre, so it could be a suitable and sizable enough location for them. As to why they don't, well, I can't really answer that question. They just haven't done that.

I also think it would be cool. Plans to build an aquarium were recently released, which may be very cool.

Well, I don't live in Lubbock, but maybe I can use the art of persuasion by proxy.

Actually, such a project has been considered as recently as 2004, but nothing's materialized, of course. And it's in the area that I've speculated on, too.

Here are three links below for conceptions.
