Tickets Available for Nashville Zoo ReOpening

The zoo reopens to the public on Thursday, June 18 with several safe measures in place for the security of all kids and adults.

Kids of all ages will be happy to know that Nashville Zoo at Grassmere is reopening this month. Zoo members get in first on June 15 – 17; the Zoo opens to the public on Thursday, June 18. In the initial phase of reopening, masks are required for ages 4 and older; providing Nashville moves forward with Phase 4 of the reopening, face masks will not be required beginning June 22.

For the zoo's reopening, following Nashville's phased reopening due to Covid-19, entry to the Zoo will include a timed-ticket line requiring advance tickets. Parents will need to know that the zoo will not accept cash, and families will need to follow a one-way path through the zoo. Certain zoo features like the Wilderness Train, Jungle Gym, Kangaroo Kickabout and Lorikeet landing will remain closed; indoor areas will remain closed and animals shows and backstage pass tours are currently canceled. The Zoofari Cafe will be open for take-out only and concession stands will be available although water fountains will be shut off.

Zoo admission is $17 adults, $13 children ages 2 – 12, free for children under age 2. Buy Tickets here. If you are a Zoo member, go here.
