The Lincoln Park Zoo is unveiling a new attraction designed to bring visitors a little closer to nature. The official ribbon cutting took place Thursday morning. The path includes interactive features and a 14-acre ecosystem. Part of the boardwalk surrounds a revitalized pond, which provides shelter to native fish.

The nature path is expected to result in more wildlife sightings than ever before in the pond's 140-year history.
