Here is a response to my inquiry asking when Freshwater Oasis would be open Hi Wendy, We still haven't been told an opening date, but I know that they are getting the animals acclimated to their habitat, so it has to be soon. Keep your fingers crossed that this silly Tropical Storm doesn't bring weather delays to the project... I do think you will be fine with an August 5 date though. It just can't take that much longer! So it sounds pretty soon!
