Knoxville Zoo

The mission of Knoxville Zoo is to celebrate the wonders of the natural world. Through education, conservation, exhibition, research and recreation, the zoo will tell the stories of the animals, the plants and the people who make up the communities of the earth. The zoo will develop positive attitudes and actions about nature and about conservation as a local and global issue. See tons of animals, birds, reptiles and more. Visit Kid’s Cove and Ride the Fuzzy-go-Round, play in the water, get close to beavers and birds, sit in a giant bird’s nest, practice milking a cow, climb a giant spider web, slide through a waterfall or go eye-to-eye with goats, and much more.
