The Water Plaza

beat the heat at the Virginia Zoo water plaza

Join the fun at one of the most-loved attractions at the Virginia Zoo. The entry plaza fountains are beautiful to see and hard to resist. Don’t forget to pack the kid’s bathing suits when you visit the Zoo, so everyone can enjoy the fun.

Pleasant seating is provided for those who want to relax and watch their excited children frolic in the water.

The fountain closes at 4:45 pm and during inclement weather.
