CapeCodOnline: Nearly 45 years after opening, ZooQuarium, the iconic, kid-friendly petting zoo and aquarium on Route 28, has closed.

“It’s been a labor of love,” said Dennis Markham, who ran the facility built by his wife’s father and another man in 1969. “It’s a hard thing to do.”

Markham, his wife and her brother decided to sell the property earlier this year, he said. The doors closed December 1 [2013].
