Henry Doorly Zoo

Omaha, Nebraska

Henry Doorly Zoo, located in Nebraska, is one of the largest and most renowned zoos in the United States. It spans over 130 acres and houses an impressive collection of over 17,000 animals from around the world. The zoo is known for its outstanding exhibits, including the Desert Dome, the world's largest indoor desert, and the Lied Jungle, a vast tropical rainforest habitat. Henry Doorly Zoo offers a captivating experience for visitors of all ages, combining education, conservation, and entertainment in a beautifully designed setting.

Superior Shade has worked with Henry Doorly Zoo on two separate occasions to shade different attractions. 

In 2019, we helped to outfit Henry Doorly Zoo’s Glacier Bay Landing, a public restaurant area, with seven 20’ x 20’ square umbrellas that provide shade to their outdoor dining tables. In the public plaza where these shades are located, the zoo provided seating for 276 people. These large umbrella shades provide abundant shade to accommodate shade for almost all 276 chairs. These square umbrella shades are located right beside a lighthouse-themed playground that we custom-designed. For more details on the custom playground, visit Superior Playgrounds.

What's more, in 2019 we also outfitted the sea lion exhibit with a custom multi-sail shade that featured 12 columns and three fabric shades.

In 2022, the zoo came back to us to help shade their newest attraction, Alaskan Adventure. The Alaskan Adventure is a splash pad with over 75 bronze statues of animals, including puffins, salmon, sea lions, and the whale centerpiece. To provide shade for parents and zoo staff, the zoo purchased 20 Square Cantilever Umbrella Shades.
