Zoos are open for the year!

March 29 - November 01, 2019

We love it when the zoos open for the year — it’s a sign that spring really is here!

Potawatomi Zoo is the oldest zoo in Indiana, and features more than 500 animals.  It opened on March 29.  There are lots of changes happening at the zoo, from remodeling of the entrance, to preparing for new animals.

The Washington Park Zoo opened on April 1; it is a Northwest Indiana treasure with over 90 species of animals. Located on the southern shore of beautiful Lake Michigan since 1928, the Zoo is spread out over 15 acres.
