NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Because of construction, the Nashville Zoo as Grassmere will now require visitors to buy their tickets ahead of time.
The change started this week. The construction will mean a new garage for the Zoo, which will mean a 62% increase in capacity. However, it will lose half of its current spots until the garage is finished. Reservations will ensure guests get a spot to attend the zoo and park on the grounds.
Officials said every person — including children and infants — will need a ticket or member reservation to enter the Zoo.
Construction should last until spring 2024.
