The Indianapolis Zoo

Wild adventures await your flock all year long! Located downtown in beautiful White River State Park, the Indianapolis Zoo offers daily opportunities for visitors to connect with incredible animals and plants.

Immerse yourself in 64 acres of animal exhibits plus 3 acres of gardens, and you can see it all for just one price! Stand just inches away from some of the planet's most awe-inspiring species — elephants from Africa's savannahs, walrus from the Pacific Northwest, orangutans from Indonesia's tropical forests, snakes from the arid Southwest, tigers from northern Russia and many more.

Plus, enjoy even more personal interactions like touching sharks, feeding flamingos and giraffes, and racing cheetahs. Or plan ahead to reserve your Dolphin In-Water Adventure — the only experience of its kind in the Midwest.

See why more than one million people come to the Zoo each year to connect with the wild world right in the heart of downtown Indianapolis!
