Founded in 1889, the National Zoological Park, also known as the National Zoo, was founded by naturalist and conservationist William T. Hornaday. The park sits on 163-acres within Rock Creek Park in northwest Washington, DC and is home to over 400 different species of animals. The park is free and is open every day of the year, except December 25.
