The Virginia Zoological Park is a 53-acre zoo located adjacent to Lafayette Park in Norfolk, Virginia. In 1900, the park began acquiring animals to exhibit.
In 1974, the facility was fenced off from the city park, and renamed Lafayette Zoological Park. Between 1974 and 1980, most of the zoo's old exhibits were renovated.

In 1985, Lafayette Zoological Park was renamed the Virginia Zoological Park at Norfolk (commonly known as the Virginia Zoo).
