So our overall reason to visit was to see the interactive kangaroo exhibit and we were successful. As long as the kangaroos are near the path you are allowed to pet or touch them (very soft!).

There were also interactive exhibits with goats and tortoises. We were told it was too cold for the tortoises but bonus, they were out.

We had a great time here. Plenty of animal to see despite to exhibits being closed for remodeling.

Overall plan to walk, but I feel that is true of any zoo. Prices compared to the Brookfield zoo in the Chicago area seemed more reasonable. The more reasonable prices also include their food.

Tip: Try to find out what time the feed the kangaroos and they will all be by the path. I think it was between 10 and 11AM.

Easter at the Nashville Zoo, beautiful warm sunny day and Easter egg hunt was in the plans during our visit to the zoo. Our one year old grandson was excited to join the mass of little ones to pick up eggs and receive a prize. Volunteers and staff were fabulous and made everyone feel welcome and special. Walked around the complex to view animals and exhibits. Obviously a crowded day but manageable getting around. Ha dither opportunity to walk through and pet kangaroos. The new Andean Bear exhibit was beautifully featured as a habitat and viewing the animals. Our family enjoyed Nashville Zoo and will definitely plan future visits as they have a nice variety of animals

Weather was great. Zoo was super clean and staff was so
Nice. First time visiting. Will definitely go back . Most of the food stations were closed guess it was out of season.

Overall, the zoo was a good time. It was a bit of a rainy day when we went, so the zoo was fairly empty. We got a prime parking spot, and didn't have to wait in line for tickets. I am from Chicago, and we have multiple free zoos, so paying $41 for two tickets and parking kind of stung a little bit. The interactions were the highlight of the experience. Walking around with kangaroos and goats was something exciting, and something you might not see at every zoo.

Between this Zoo and the Louisville zoo this one is hands down my favorite, both have their pros & cons but the animal enclosures seem to be more realistic then the ones in Louisville. But of course the Louisville one is older by 20 years. Look forward to another visit in the future.
