Nashville Zoo Ticketing Changes Roll Out as Parking Expansion Gets Green Light

Nashville Zoo Ticketing Changes

This fall, Nashville Zoo will break ground on a massive parking garage expansion that will eventually increase parking capacity by 62%. During construction, the Zoo will lose about half of its current parking spots. In an effort to provide guests with the best possible Zoo experience, a reserved entry system will be implemented starting September 12 to prevent overcrowding in the remaining parking lots.

Starting September 12, both guests and members will be required to purchase admission tickets or complete a member reservation in advance of their visit. Every person, including children and infants will need a ticket or member reservation to enter the Zoo.

The planned construction is extensive and is expected to last through the spring of 2024. The timed ticketing system will help to ensure that the Zoo remains accessible and allows guests to fully enjoy their visit. To accommodate anticipated larger crowds, additional parking is being developed in another area of the Zoo and will include shuttles for guests. The Zoo staff thanks everyone for their patience as this much-needed infrastructure expansion is completed to prepare for increased attendance in the coming years.
