Places to Play at the Zoo
Splash Park presented by Kroger is
open at the Indianapolis Zoo on days when the temperature is expected to
reach at least 70 degrees! If you need to cool off on a hot day, come try the latest in liquid fun.
Located near the exit of the Forests exhibit and across from
Café on the Commons, the Splash Park was designed with spray
nozzles and water jets that will amaze and entertain the kids
all summer long!
Parents, we've also included some picnic tables nearby so that you can
relax and enjoy a
quick snack while you watch your children play!
* Note: the kids will get very wet — bring a bathing suit, a towel or
change of clothes for the little ones!
