In search of a fun attraction to take the entire family to? Then check out the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere, home to animals from all over the world, as well as the "Jungle Gym," the largest community-built playground of its kind in the country.
Some of the most popular animal attractions include Alligator Cove, the Giraffe Savanna, and an African Wild Dog exhibit. While the animals are alluring to both parents and kids alike, the real attraction may be the Jungle Gym. Spreading out over 66,000 square feet (6,131 square meters) the playground houses a vast array of slides, cargo netting, swings and climbing structures for children. Kids will want to spend hours running around in this expansive entertainment area.
The Nashville Zoo at Grassmere is located six mi (10 km) southeast of downtown Nashville. It takes about 15 minutes to get there by car.
