This 200-acre walk-through zoological park is home to the rare and beautiful. Encounter cougars, black bears, Bengal tigers, zebras, cheetahs and playful river otters. Kids can go wild on the Jungle Gym playground. The Croft Center, named for the sisters who left the estate to Grassmere, houses the Unseen New World exhibit and a variety of reptiles. There is also a working farm exhibit and petting zoo.
The only good thing about these Nashville Zoo at Grassmere is the playground- which you're better off going to Two Rivers park near the wave country anyway. There aren't even any animals except for the occasional bird!
i loved the pictures i was online just looking at things to visit when i move to Tennessee. The zoo is the first place I want to go. I live in Virginia and I love Virginia Zoo till this day and I am 23 years old
I've been to a handful of zoos before, and the Nashville Zoo has disappointed me the most. I read the other comments on here before I left to visit the zoo and I should have listened, stayed home and saved my money. Nashville is such a booming town, and to have a zoo like this is pitiful. I don't see how they can charge $13 per person... The only thing we liked at this zoo was the Meerkat exhibit - there is a glass fence so little children can see the animals well and the Meerkats are very curious and run by you many times.
Ive been to other zoo's St.louis,phoenix,even this one before they moved it from cheahtam co.it was so much better at the other location,and according other people ive talked to its under construction every year with no real change,few animals for the price to say the least,no gorrillas,lions,bears,rhinos...i could go on and on so that should tell you.we will not be going back.but the animals that were there looked content and had plenty of room,if you could see them do to the fact the viewing areas were really small.
The Zoon is a nice one, but comparing to the original Nashville Zoo - there is no comparison. Grassmere just doesn't have alot of charm. Regardless, my younger kids really enjoyed the experience and we are glad there is a zoo in Nashville. If you're visiting the zoo just because you're in Nashville, you might want to think twice about it.
WE DID MORE WALKING AND LESS OF SEEING THE ANIMALS. IF YOU DO DECIDED TO TAKE YOUR STROLLER YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO TAKE IT IN SOME OF THE EXHIBITS(MY FEAR WAS TO LEAVE THE STROLLER TO GO SEE THE EXHIBIT AND SOMEONE STEAL OUR STROLLER). THERE WAS ALOT OF CONSTRUCTION GOING ON WHILE WE WERE THERE. BRING YOUR OWN WATER AND FOOD- WAY TO EXPENSIVE TO BUY THESE THINGS INSIDE THE ZOO!!! IT WAS NOT WORTH THE MONEY OR THE TIME!!!
it was very clean and avergae sized. when i went there were no children over the age of 8 by the looks of t. it seemed to be targeted more towards younger kids and thier parents. my 13 year old daughter was mortally imbarrassed to have come and kept saying: mom i think this is for younger kids as she watched aboundances of strollers go past
The zoo is very kid friendly, and has a variety of animals. But I've been to better zoos. It also seemed quite spread out between exhibits, so I would reccomend strollers for babies/toddlers and walking shoes! Also there is not many concession areas, so be prepared to wait in line for a long time if buying food or drinks.
Ilove are zoo it keep getting better it just need time look on there master plan it will happen one day . I been to the Memphis zoo it may have more Animals but there cages are OS small . Are zoo care better for the Animals cage room . I have membership and it is is OS good to have . I go there a lot and all ways have fun.
The zoo at Nashville is the most inaccessible I’ve ever been to. The parking for handicap persons does not meet federal guidelines (Not enough Van accessible spaces ada (dot) gov) Wheelchair bound persons are charged full price but cannot get to every exhibit. The concrete is texturized to be very difficult to chairs. Yet I saw eight persons in three hours in wheelchairs. Duh! Serve the public or at least meet federal regulations.
