Albany - The animals won't be the only things drawing stares at the Park at Chehaw. The Park is turning its front entrance into a nature exhibit of its own. The Parks at Chehaw started a $340,000 dollar improvement project this week.

"Hundreds of massive boulders will line the main gate," said Park Director Glenn Dobrogosz. "And exotic trees and plants will create a feeling of entering a wildlife exhibit." The park is using local sales tax money to pay for the improvements. The Park plans to reveal its master plan by May which includes thousands of dollars in other changes to the camping area, playground, and zoo.
