#6 of 20 in Parks in Chattanooga
Chattanooga Zoo is a small but well-populated zoo with a mixture of exotic and local animals that are divided into six areas. Enter Gombe Forest to see chimpanzees and the African crowned crane. Move through to the Corcovado Jungle for a look at capybaras, jaguars, and the colorful macaws. In the Himalayan Passage, try to find the shy red panda, with its distinctive dark eyes and banded tail. In Walkin' the Tracks, you'll encounter North American animals, while Warner Park Ranch is a haven for domesticated animals. In the Deserts and Forests of the World, you can view meerkats and sloths.

  • Today, we visited the zoo and it was awesome! Yes, it's small but worth it. I loved how close the animals get to the cage and almost want to interact with you. I got awesome pics, and my kids really enjoyed it and they are older. We are huge animal lovers and have visited many zoo but this one is probably the best as far as the encounters go it's not crowded and u can actually see and take wonderful pics without being pushed and worked through crowds. They are adding on, and more animals are too come so I cant wait to visit again in the future! Great work Chattanooga Zoo.
  • Smaller zoo, makes for quick visits. No larger animals here, but the layout is smart and convenient. Nicely sectioned by regional themes, cute interactive decorations for kids along the pathways. Camel rides, scheduled daily showings, and a cute petting zoo with goats, ponies and a pig. Some displays are in need of updating, but it seems that are making some improvements and were constructing new exhibits and play areas during our last visit.
