With numerous animal shows and feedings, as well as interactive exhibits, it's no wonder Denver Zoo is Colorado's top cultural attraction. You may only spend the day at Denver Zoo but that day always sticks with you.

The Edge Grand Opening Week <p>The Edge is a one-acre exhibit that is designed to both mimic the natural living environment of Siberian tigers and provide the zoo's tigers with more space to explore. Throughout the exhibit, zoo designers have placed a dozen pine trees, which are found all throughout Siberia. The trees will serve as enrichment devices for the tigers living in The Edge, and they will also make the exhibit resemble the edge of a forest, which is the inspiration for the title of the expansion. Another unique feature of the exhibit will be several pools that will allow the tigers to cool off on warm summer days.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center
