Not a lot of animals and very expensive rates, parking not included! They are trying to get more animals and expand but this was a disappointment as far as a zoo, however, if you have nothing else to do, it's ok for the kids, just...More

Typical of Nashville this is a low key place. You can even hang out, literally, with the Kangaroos. Dave Matthews went there a few weeks ago and talked about it all during his show. Lots to see and lots to do.

At only 20 years old, it's still a fairly new zoo. There are several exhibits under development, so it will soon be home to some new animals. No, they don't currently have lions, tigers, elephants, or bears but what they do have have very nice...More

Disappointed. Didn't have lions, tigers, elephants, chimps, gorillas. The military discount was laughable at only $2 off. You do a lot of walking for little reward.

The zoo is smaller than most we visit. The food vendors closed early, so we didn't get a treat. Seemed like most animals were not out yet. We didn't see much.

Great zoo, not huge but quality is very good. I especially enjoyed the giraffs and the howler monkeys. The environments are very animal friendly with space and emulating a natural environment,

Our family group, in town for graduation celebrations, thought the zoo would be a great way to share time with the grandkids and cousins, ages 17 to 3 years old. It was. Petting kangaroos! Feeding the tortoises! Eating lunch! Being outdoors!
