A special petting area allows children to touch, but not feed, the tamer animals. There's also the world's largest enclosed dolphin show and a roller-coaster for all ages to enjoy.

“Ok Zoo!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Finally had a fairly nice day in January and took in the zoo. It was a pretty average zoo. Would have been better in the spring and summer for sure!

“Best Zoo Ever!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

My family and I have been members of the zoo for the past two years. I have a three year old son and we never tire of the zoo. We went probably 15 times last year and had a great time each one. I've been to a lot of zoos and this one is right up at the top of my list.

“Love the aquarium and gardens!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Wish the zoo was free like the St. Louis Zoo, but oh well! The aquarium was really neat given that not all zoos have aquariums. The gardens are beautiful.

“I'm a sucker for a zoo.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

The zoo is part of White River State Park. It is not on the caliber of the St Louis or Cincinnati zoos but is worth a visit if you have extra time in Indy. Adjacent to the zoo is White River Gardens which features tropical plants and a butterfy exhibit.
