Home to over 2,000 animals and Indiana's largest aquarium, this 64-acre zoo has lions, elephants and other wild animals roaming through natural settings. 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.

After several years of being away, my girls and I made a trip to the zoo with their grandma. It was so much fun. Loved seeing the animals but especially the orangutan exhibit. It is amazing!

The Indy Zoo is a must visit, and we arrived by 10:20AM. Polar Bears have been absent for several years; however, the nearly downtown Indy Zoo is very, very nice. Indy Zoo is a solid 10 of 10. Lots of Zoo animals and the Café...More

Have always had a fun time at the zoo. My grandchildren love it and enjoy the feeding of the birds and other animals. There is so much to see and do and the animals are up close so you can really let them entertain you.
