    My overall experience was great! however the food service at the concession/food area was horrible. I was in line waiting to be served , a couple skipped line and was serviced before me, after acknowledging to the the employee that i was next, she understood what happened and still proceeded to take yet another customer order who was on the other side of the counter and not in line. after addressing the situation yet another time , i was at this point livid and felt like my money was not needed nor wanted. I really dont complain about the small stuff, but this was completely unacceptable. needless to say i did not order any food and i let the clerk know how unprofessional she was.

    I have always enjoyed the Nashville zoo and try to take the kids several times a year. It is smaller and not on the scales of the larger National zoos. They have a great cross reference of animals and the tours of the Grassmere mansion are great. I read some of the reviews and thought they were unfair comparing a small city zoo to the National museums (in one laughable review the person said “they didn’t even have a panda” – for your reference there are 15 live pandas in the U.S. right now housed in 4 different zoos). The zoo is well done, clean, and I don’t think the prices are much different than any of museums, national park etc gift/ snack shops that we go to. If you want to spend a nice day there its great –

    My family and I are impressed beyond words. We’re from Milwaukee, WI so we have a great zoo, and I was really skeptical about this zoo. It. Was. AMAZING! Just over the top. The zoo itself is beautifully designed, and has so much detail and is overall beautiful to walk through. The exhibits are outstanding. One, they are HUGE; two, there isn’t just one, or two animals in each exhibit, but MANY whether it’s a pack or herd of the same species or they have a bunch of animals together!The Kangaroo exhibit. It’s beyond words. The fact that they jump right up to you…amazing!

    I should have went to Memphis zoo. I saw 4 parrots, 3 elephants, 3 pigs from the Lion King, and 4 giraffes. At one point I ended up walking for 15 minutes without seeing an animal. I was actually following signs for a place to get something to drink & sit down (it was 94 degrees outside). When I finally reached the end of the walk, the hut was closed & the water foundations next to the building were LOCKED. I went back to the ticket booth & asked for a full refund, which I received. Highlight: the tour of the old house on the grounds was very nice!If I could give anyone some advice, just a make the drive to either the Memphis zoo or the Louisville zoo.

    A great assortment of animals for a small zoo. Lots of shade and greenery. The animal habitats are beautiful. Also, there are lots of good sitting spots and free wifi.
