ADA Accessibility Notes

The Chattanooga Zoo is ADA accessible and compliant.

Whether you're content to admire the prowl of the snow leopards or you would rather discuss the plight of the endangered red pandas with a zookeeper, the Chattanooga Zoo is the place for you. In addition to observing a number of wild and exotic animals in large exhibits mirroring real-life habitats, you can learn about Species Survival Plans and the intricate workings of local conservationists. If local animals are your thing, you might enjoy visiting the Zoo's Rehabilitation Department and see first-hand the many animals they help. Be sure to cool off after your visit with a carousel ride featuring over thirty hand carved animals representing various endangered species.

Whatever your preference, the Chattanooga Zoo is an exciting and diverse zoo that provides for an intimate and personal experience. Come see us!
