The Washington Park Zoo is only one of five zoos located in Indiana and draws in more than 80,000 visitors per year.   Its rich history begins in 1928 with portions of its buildings, walkways and exhibits built by the Works Progress Administration (WPA). Zoobilee is one of our main fundraisers which helps fund care for the animals, purchase new animals, and repair and maintain exhibits. We support and promote the conservation of our Washington Park Zoo animal family and are dedicated to their quality of life and care.  Our mission is to continue animal education, awareness, and respect throughout our community.  Your participation is important to our mission and goals and we appreciate your support and attendance.
