Where are we located?

The Indianapolis Zoo is located at 1200 W. Washington Street, Indianapolis, IN 46222 along the banks of the White River. Conveniently located less than a mile west of downtown in beautiful White River State Park, visitors can easily access the Zoo whether they’re coming by vehicle, on a bicycle or on foot.

Parking

Parking at the Indianapolis Zoo is available on a first-come, first-served basis. During construction for the Zoo’s new front entrance, parking at the front of the Zoo will be limited and handicap-accessible parking will be located at the front corner of the west section in the main parking lot.

We recommend that guests stow items out of sight and lock vehicles at all times. The Zoo is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Charging Stations

Guests can charge their electric vehicles at one of two stations in the Zoo’s parking lot. Cars can be charged for a nominal fee for up to eight hours.

Electric cars are among the most effective ways to reduce carbon emissions. Beyond producing fewer greenhouse gases, other advantages of these vehicles include lower cost, maintenance and the trend to use recycled materials in production.

The Zoo is able to offer the recharging stations thanks to AES Indiana’s Electric Vehicle Charging Program.
