Zoo Knoxville


Zoo Knoxville is a premier family destination in East Tennessee. Walk around the park and see elephants, tigers, langurs, gibbons, red pandas and more in places like Grasslands Africa and Boyd Family Asian Trek!

As our animal habitats grow, so do our experiences. Interact with snakes, birds and other animals during keeper chats and animal encounters, or simply cool down at the new Clayton Safari Splash Pad. We have special events year-round for children, adults and passholders—from BOO! at the Zoo to Feast with the Beasts. Our events are the perfect weekend getaway, spent with the people you love.

Every guest that visits Zoo Knoxville also helps save wildlife and wild places. Together, we can create a diverse conservation effort to ensure we don’t lose animals to extinction.

Fun on the outside. Serious about animals on the inside.
