Chattanooga Zoo

Chattanooga Zoo


Welcome to a more welcoming Zoo!

Imagine a Zoo that's specifically designed to bring the animals up close to you. Imagine a zoo where you have time to notice the subtleties of animal behavior, instead of being pushed along by an impatient crowd. Imagine an exciting and diverse zoo that's still easy to navigate with strollers ... or little legs. Imagine a zoo that provides worthwhile fun at a price that won't break the bank. With more than 300 animals representing 130 different species, many of which are endangered, the Chattanooga Zoo is committed to engaging and inspiring our community to better understand and preserve wildlife by creating meaningful connections between people and animals. Get face to face with a chimpanzee or jaguar, ride a camel or check out some rare and venemous reptiles. Come by and see why everyone is calling the AZA-accredited Chattanooga Zoo "the Best Little Zoo in America."


Affordably priced at $8.95 for adults and $5.95 for children and only a mere two miles from downtown, the Chattanooga Zoo is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with the exception of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day. For more information, visit
