The Indianapolis Zoo is also accredited by the
(AAM) as a botanical garden. The Zoo
was the first attraction in the country to achieve the triple accreditation
of zoological park, aquarium, and botanical garden.
Indianapolis Zoo is located in White River State Park, a unique urban setting
for a state park. At White River State Park, you will find trails, grassy
areas and waterways just like you would see at any other state park. However,
that is where the similarities end. White River State Park has cultural,
educational and recreational attractions to offer something interesting to each
visitor. The NCAA Hall of Champions, Indianapolis Zoo, the Eiteljorg Museum of
American Indians and Western Art and the Congressional Medal of Honor Memorial
are just a few of the attractions in the Park. Be sure to stop by the Visitors
Center to start your visit to White River State Park.
