It looks great.. I've started recently trying to do something similar
(remotely) for the Wildlife Park on the Isle of Man
(http://osm.org/go/evGwiGNLr- ), but it's difficult without having
been there for a while. So, I went out yesterday to start doing London
Zoo (though without actually going in), which could really benefit
from someone wanting to pay £18 to go in and map for an afternoon :)

I wonder if it would actually make it clearer in this situation to
break the zoo into two, so it's clear that the path isn't a part of
it? I've done that with London Zoo which has a road, canal and
tow-path running through it at various points, and is connected using
bridges and a tunnel (or two?).
