Add some exotic to your everyday with Nashville Zoo. Wander through a lush canopy of bamboo, come face to face with a clouded leopard, feed some Australian parrots and delve into the far reaches of the Amazon. Nashville Zoo is your ticket to African elephants, poison arrow frogs, zebras, red pandas, gibbons, giraffes and so much more! See these beautiful creatures in natural surroundings, like the Alligator Cove, Red River Hog Habitat and Flamingo Lagoon. In between your animal adventures, be sure to take a spin on our Wild Animal Carousel, monkey around on our 66,000-square-foot Jungle Gym or dine in the gentle shade of our Jungle Terrace. You can even step back in time at our Grassmere Historic Home and Farm.
