Walk with the Animals

OstrichWith the beautiful sunny weather in store for tomorrow I wanted to make sure you knew about a special event at the Zoo we heard about from our friends at FitCity. Riley Hospital for Children and the Indianapolis Zoo have come together to create a fun way for you and your children to get active. The Riley Fitness Adventure takes place at the Indianapolis Zoo tomorrow, Saturday, June 6, from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. (Rain date is June 13). Kids can try stretching exercises to promote flexibility and balance; lift weights to promote strength; jump rope to promote cardiovascular fitness; and try long jumping to promote locomotor skills. They also can learn good nutrition habits from the animals! Just go to the Plains Biome where everyone can participate in different activities- and look for FitCity while you’re there. The event is included with Zoo admission. FitCity Fun Fact: It’s 2,000 steps from the Zoo’s front gate, around the Plains, through the exhibits and back (a 1-mile loop).
