Re: “Hampton Park was once home to bison, otter, and even a lion

My brother and I walked through Hampton Park every day to James Simmons Elem. as kids back in the early to mid 1950s. i vividly remember the zoo with the monkeys, otters and the aviary houses and the bison. We would shake the cyclone fence enclosure of the bison to the point where he couldn't stand it any more and he would snort and snort and charge the fence at us and actually just run into the fence trying to get at us. We would squeal like the scared school kids that we were and hightail it for home as fast as we could. Neat memories.
