Zoos are amazingly fun places to be with your family and especially families with young children. You get to see the animals, be outside in a park like setting, and eat a snack. The Chattanooga zoo does not have any of these worth mentioning. I would compare it to someone's hobby of collecting animals in small cages rather than a zoo. We spent less than an hour there and were really disappointed, and I'm being nice.
There seemed to be construction on a newer park/zoo going on, but to make people pay $8 for nothing... I was really sad for everyone involved. Save your money and time and visit the Tennesee aquarium instead... It is state of the art!
