Long time lurker, first time poster.
Does anyone know if the Fort Worth Zoo was at one time known as the Forest Park Zoo? I know that part of it runs along Forest Park Blvd. The history page on the zoo's website makes no mention of other names.
The reason that I ask, a few years ago, my grandparents, who lived about two hours west of Fort Worth, passed away. While cleaning out their house, I stumbled upon an old souvenir shot glass from the "Forest Park Zoo". It looked like it was from the 40s or 50s. Searching on Google, the only Forest Park Zoo that I can find is located in Massachusetts, and I am certain that they never traveled to the East Coast. However, a visit to Fort Worth would have made a perfect day trip for them.
Any information would be much appreciated!
