Don't miss out on the last week of Penguin
Discount Days at Knoxville Zoo! Admission to the zoo is halfoff
through Feb. 28, 2011.
Many of the zoo's animals are taking advantage of the mild
weather and enjoying time outdoors. The zoo's favorite indoor
exhibit, Wee Play Zoo, is a cozy place to stop and play if you do
happen to get a little chilly. When the temperature drops below
40 degrees, some animals will be moved to their indoor
enclosures, but visitors can still see elephants, gorillas, penguins,
reptiles, and chimpanzees in their indoor viewing areas.
Half-price admission tickets can be purchased at the zoo ticket
office during regular zoo hours. Tickets can also be purchased at
all Knoxville area Kroger stores and online at
www.knoxvillezoo.org. Discounted admission tickets must be used by Feb. 28, 2011, and cannot be
combined with any other promotion, discount, or coupon.
Knoxville Zoo is Knoxville's largest year-round attraction. Located off exit 392A from Interstate 40, the
zoo is open every day except Christmas Day. Knoxville Zoo is nationally accredited by the Association
of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and is committed to the highest standards in animal care and well-being,
ethics, conservation, and education. Currently, the zoo is open daily from 10:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
Admission and ticket sales stop one-hour before the zoo closes. Next-day admission is free after 3 p.m.
