This week is the last chance for Indianapolis plant and animal lovers to catch the beautiful Asian Impressions exhibit in the Hilbert Conservatory at the Indianapolis Zoo. Get away to the Far East by taking a tour through this botanical display. The Asian Impressions exhibit is located in downtown Indianapolis at the White River Gardens, and is included in the regular zoo admission fee until Sunday, November 8, 2009.
The intricate bamboo gated entrance to this Indianapolis attraction is just the beginning of a walk into a faraway land. The relaxing botanical walk is perfect for an afternoon vacation, or a family Saturday adventure. The tranquil and relaxing environment is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown Indy, and has even become a hot spot for Indianapolis business people to frequent during lunch hours.

The Asian style garden resembles the real deal, with hanging conifers, and eloquent shoji paper screens.The Asian Impressions exhibit, and many other events in the Hilbert Conservatory, is supported by endowments from the Arts Council of Indianapolis, the City of Indianapolis and the Richard M. Fairbanks Foundation. Contributions like these helps preserve the variety and uniqueness of Indianapolis culture, while simultaneously improving Indianapolis education.
