Des Moines Zoo Has New Event Center

DES MOINES, Iowa - There's a new 10,000 square foot event center at Blank Park Zoo in Des Moines.

The Holmes Foster Event Center replaces the old Zoo-Plex, and can host everything from indoor sports to weddings and reunions.

A nine-hole mini-golf course being set up in the new center, and will be free with general admission to the zoo.

The facility is capable of seating 350 people at a round table setting, and about 500 people in a theater style arrangement.

“Blank Park Zoo adds a unique element to an event, making it a one-of-a-kind experience,” said Kevin Prust, director emeritus of the Blank Park Zoo board. “The Holmes Foster Event Center will make an impact because it offers a special space for a combination of the Zoo experience and private events that enhances the gatherings of friends and families.”

The event center is named in memory of Holmes Foster, a longtime supporter of Blank Park Zoo.
