Attraction Overview

Travel the Indianapolis Zoo and White River Gardens and move from one fascinating ecological system (biomes) to another.  From Arctic lands to the African plains, a visit to the Indianapolis Zoo is literally a trip around the world!

Located in White River State Park, the Indianapolis Zoo is a 64-acre zoological park, aquarium, and botanical garden, where animals, plants, and people connect through education, exhibition, conservation, and research.  The Zoo takes pride in providing lifelong recreational learning experiences for visitors and instilling a sense of stewardship for the Earth’s plants and animals.

The primary points where people connect with animals and plants are within the Zoo’s “biomes” or collection of habitats.  The biome concept presents approximately 250 species of animals and 1,700 species of plants together in simulated natural habitats.

As visitors travel through the Zoo, they go from one fascinating ecological system to another and begin to get a sense of appreciation for the diversity of life.  Because many people will never have the opportunity to visit an African plain or an Asian temperate forest, the Zoo recreates these natural environments.

From the arctic land of the penguins and polar bear near the front of the Zoo, to a safari with the cheetahs, rhinos, and elephants in the plains near the far end, your visit to the Indianapolis Zoo is literally a trip around the world!
