Nashville Zoo Announces Plans for Major Expansion

Nashville Zoo announced plans to begin a major new development that will add more animal exhibits and allow better access for visitors. The announcement comes on the heels of the city's approval of capital funding to help support the zoo's growth. Construction crews will soon begin working on several projects in the initial phase of a long-term plan to grow the zoo. These projects include: A new entry plaza that will meet the demands of growing membership and general attendance. New exhibits featuring Andean bears and spider monkeys. A much needed, veterinary hospital. Vital infrastructure improvements including expanded parking, roads and walkways. To date, the zoo has received commitments totaling $28 million to begin a multi-million dollar, multi-year campaign to fund the expansion. The funds raised include a recently approved $10 million allotment in Nashville's 2015 capital spending plan, as well as $5 million in the 2014 capital spending plan. The city's $10 million investment will be applied to infrastructure improvements and is contingent upon the zoo's ability to match the funds with privately raised funds. The zoo sits on 188 acres which is owned by Metro Parks and Recreation. Currently about 82 acres have been developed.
