“Connecting animals, plants, and people”
Since opening in 1964, the Indianapolis Zoo has grown into a world-class facility hosting a million visitors each year and playing a major role in worldwide conservation and research. Located in White River State Park since 1988, the Zoo has received international recognition for work with animal conservation and breeding programs, including accomplishing the world’s first successful artificial insemination of an African elephant. The Indianapolis Zoo was the first to be triple accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and the American Association of Museums as a zoo, an aquarium and a botanic garden. Look for the AZA logo whenever you visit a zoo or aquarium to know you are supporting a facility dedicated to providing excellent care for animals, a great experience for you, and a better future for all living things. White River Gardens is part of the Zoo and continues its tradition of connecting animals, plants, and people. This stunningly beautiful 3.3-acre landmark botanical attraction combines the best of gardening ideas, plant information and inspirational design to serve the needs of all visitors. With hundreds of plant varieties on display plus entertaining special exhibits throughout the year, White River Gardens is an international showplace for Indiana where visitors can enjoy and learn about the bounty of the natural world. Visitors to the Gardens will be inspired, impressed, enlivened, and entertained.
