This is a wonderful zoo! One of my favorites, and I've been to several through the years. It seems to get better every year. Go early to avoid the crowds, especially on nice weekend days.
The exhibits are top notch, the zoo is easy to go through without missing anything (using a map or their signs), and the animals have plenty of room to move around. My favorites were the zebras and elephants.
Beautiful, green environment smack in the middle of Nashville. Wonderful place to take children, including a marvelous playground and a gorgeous carousel.
We love this zoo and got a membership (recommended - no lines and free parking, plus you can hop in and out for a stroll). Though some of the cages need work (others have been under construction for a while), the overall impression is that there is genuine care and concern for the animals and that the animals live in a relatively nice environment.
The Nashville Zoo never disappoints. There are several large exhibits under construction, but the staff is friendly and the jungle gym play area is the best. The zoo is almost always open, get their early and head for the Kangaroos first. The sweet older man who collects tokens at the carousel is a reason to love life.
We love visiting the Nashville Zoo. It is fun to play on the massive playground and to visit with the animals.
This is truly a beautiful zoo, which blends the feel of native Nashville's landscape with global exhibits. Best in spring and fall when weather is pleasant, although you can bring coolers/food in all year (no straws to protect animals). Membership is worth it because you can make many short trips. You can even add on unlimited rides on the Eagle, train, carousel for a fee to the membership.
The Nashville Zoo seems to lack attractions. The attractions that are available are nice. We love the old barn and the overall experience of the zoo.
Great place to spend a weekday afternoon (if you want to stay away from the crowded weekends). The grounds are pleasant, and the habitats are lovely. I do wish they had a few more exotic animals and that there wasn't so much construction, but otherwise it's a lot of fun! The kangaroo exhibit is the best!
Always a fun experience to come visit the Nashville zoo! My favorite time to go is during the springtime.
A fun place to take kids too when my kids were little they really enjoy the zoo's play ground!!!!!!!
