Since 1996, Nashville Zoo at Grassmere has been delighting locals and charming tourists year-round. Home to the exotic African elephants, Bengal tigers and red pandas, Nashville Zoo offers sanctuary to a variety of animals found all over the world.

Happy to provide jubilant additions, the Zoo also includes the Wild Animal Carousel and an interactive Lorikeet Landing exhibit. At the Lorikeet Landing, visitors are invited into a lush aviary, the home of more than 50 Australian parrots. Once you’ve met all the furry friends of the Zoo, tour the grounds of the Historic House and Farm and settle into an afternoon of play at the Jungle Gym.
