The zoo was in the state capital, Des Moines. The Iowa State Zoo was a combination of a zoo and a pleasure park, where amusements were combined with a zoo with mostly indigenous animals. The park was created by the Iowa Zoo & Amusement Co., controlled by a Chicago company which owned a large number of similar parks in the U.S.A. The company was founded in 1909, with a capital of $250,000. The majority of the shares were held by the company which built the park. Along with the collection of animals was a restaurant, dance-hall, Japanese tea-garden, carousel, labyrinth, etc., to amuse the visitors. The park opened in 1909. (Ref.
