Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Leopards, primates and a new play space are all coming to the Louisville Zoo. 

The Zoo's Leadership Capital Campaign wrapped up on Thursday. The campaign managed to raise $11.4 million. 

Campaign funds will go to adding an early learning play space, a new snow leopard exhibit, and making several upgrades at the Zoo. 

"We're also expanding the African Outpost restaurant experience, so you'll actually be able to come to the Zoo and have your lunch and watch these beautiful primates and everything they're doing," said Zoo Director John Walczak. 

Zoo officials say they hope to open all the new exhibits by 2019.
