This is a beautifully maintained zoo with beautiful trails and interspersed animals in their natural surroundings. You must see their lovely carousel with varied animals that are not usually a part of carousels.

Small zoo, perfect for small children, big playground. They are in the process of reconfiguring and replacing several exhibits (no more elephants) and they seem to be going the way of most zoos of not trying to do everything but specialising more. As an adult, I wouldn't come but for kids it's very accessible with friendly and knowledgeable docents.

Fairly decent zoo. There are supposed to be some upgrades coming, and I'm sure that will help a lot. Not a ton of animals to see here. However, if you're 21+ then you should check out Brew at the Zoo in May.

Not your average zoo! Animals in their native habitat. Take a picnic lunch and plan to spend the day. Good food on site, huge playground, aviary, carrousel, so much. You won't want to miss it.

Come “swing like a gibbon” at Jungle Gym, a 35-foot-tall tree house, cargo-net climbing area, slide, and giant snake tunnel at the Nashville Zoo. It’s the largest community-built playground in America (perhaps there’s something to that Volunteer State nickname), and a perfect stopover between the African Savannah exhibit—teeming with giraffes, elephants, river hogs—and the Jungle Loop, where leopards, lemurs, and antelopes run wild.

This would be a great place to visit for families on a budget who can't do a major vacation. The children will definitely enjoy learning and seeing all of the different types animals! Highly recommended!

This zoo is really lovely. It is not so big but areas are really well organized and every thing is integrated with nature. There is the jungle loop with Tiger, coguar, lynx.. And the Safari loop with the elephants, giraffes ... A gate where cangoroos are free and you could touch them, a big building with the 'unseen World', and also lots of birds. We spent the whole day inside with our little boy. He really enjoyed a lot. The perfect place for families.

The kids just loved the place, though they had to walk and run a lot! Many different animals to see and the zoo is spacious, clean and family friendly. Inside the zoo you get many things to eat though slightly expensive. We will definitely be back!
