The Zoo is open at 100 percent capacity and reservations are not required. Beginning May, 27, 2023, the Zoo is moving to a cashless system to provide a speedy, carefree, and convenient entry for guests. Visitors are urged to purchase their tickets ahead of time online. For guests who bring cash, we have a cash-to-card service available. The system allows visitors to transfer their cash onto a card up to $500.
Located along the scenic riverbanks in White River State Park, the Zoo is conveniently located near beautiful downtown Indianapolis with easy access to walking and biking trails into the city. The Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and the American Alliance of Museums.
