It was founded in 1925 on Swans island, in the middle of the first lake, with only two owls and three foxes. Founder of the ZOO was civil engineer Mijo Filipović. Vjekoslav Heinzel, Zagreb 's major at that time entrusted him with adaptation of Park Maksimir. In two years of its existence Swan's lake became too small, and the ZOO spread out to the large peninsula, as well. It occupies that same 7 ha area today.
