The mission of Nashville Zoo is to inspire a culture of understanding and discovery of our natural world through conservation, innovation and leadership. Nashville Zoo is a progressive and dynamic zoological park serving Middle Tennessee, southern Kentucky and hundreds of thousands of tourists that travel to Nashville every year.


Since opening its doors in 1991, the Zoo has grown from a small, private operation in Cheatham County to an Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) accredited facility with international conservation involvement. Over 1.2 million visitors come to Nashville Zoo annually, making us the top family attraction in Middle Tennessee. 



Ed-zoo-cational experiences for kids of all ages! Nashville Zoo is proud to offer award-winning camps, classes and group programs to connect our community with nature.
