    The Grasmere zoo is the best. It's still relatively new when compared to all the older, much better grounded zoos, which makes it cost more. They're still building the zoo, so many exhibits are still in the future. I'm not complaining on the "lack of other animals"; on the contrary, I just count myself fortunate that I can see what they do have. If others want to complain about the imagined "lack of animals", then why don't they just build their own zoo and see how it's like?

    I've been to many zoos, this one was by far the worst. There were hardly any animals, and you had to walk so far to get to each exhibit. There was alot of construction, so several exhibits were closed. What zoo does not have lions, bears, or wolves? No rare foxes? For the amount of money it costs to take your family to the zoo it simply was not worth it. The best part of our entire day was feeding the birds. Which costs extra. Everything does! Next time we're going to Memphis, I don't plan to ever return to Nashville's zoo.

    Cute ids the only word that I can think this fits for the zoo. It's a small intimate place with a decent layout. It is small so it feels overcrowded very easily. I thought that the animal enclosures were very small and didn't allow the animals enough room to roam. But since it is a small zoo they don't have a lot of animals. No lions, sea life, etc. It's $15 to enter and they do offer a membership. For the size I think the price is a little over, but it's not unreasonable. All in all, we probably won't be back, but we did enjoy our day.

  • Inaccessible

    The zoo at Nashville is the most inaccessible I’ve ever been to. The parking for handicap persons does not meet federal guidelines ( Not enough Van accessible spaces) Wheelchair bound persons are charged full price but cannot get to every exhibit. The concrete is texturized to be very difficult to chairs. Yet I saw eight persons in three hours in wheelchairs. Duh! Serve the public or at least meet federal regulations.

  • Best Zoo ever
    by  on 12/06/2011

    I love the zoo. I am a member so I can get in for free. The food in the little cafe is always good. I love seeing all the animals and touring the grounds around the Croft Family home. However the cemetary needs some maintence like weeding, the grass is always high and its hard to read the markers. I love getting discounts in the gift shop and snack areas. I love the Red Pandas and The Tiger Leopard Cubs and the Flamingos are so cool. It might not be the biggest Zoo in the world but it is still really cool to visit.

  • Love the Zoo
    by  on 03/01/2011

    My family loves the zoo we have a membership, and have found it worth the price! The zoo is always clean and the animals have more natural environments than many other zoo's i have visited. The animals seem pretty content. There is a lot of walking but many of the trails are shaded so even on the hot days of summer its not too hot. I have a young child and he loves riding in the stroller and seeing the animals the fish/reptile building is great because you get to see many creatures up close. I'm excited to see the zoo expand even more and get more animals for us to visit.
