  • Summer Splash H2Oliday, presented by Southern ICEE

    Jul 1st, 2017
    9:00am - 3:00pm
    Nashville Zoo

    With temperatures on the rise, the Zoo transforms into a water wonderland complete with slides, wet and wild games, splashy attractions and more.

    A Cool Zone Tent lets guests stroll through a flurry of snow and “Club Chill” is the perfect spot to shake off the summer heat.

    Guests can pick up a keeper talk schedule at the front gate to see some of the Zoo’s animals devour their own brand of Popsicle, like frozen grapes, turkey broth pops and chilled meal worms.

    Summer Splash H2Oliday is included with Zoo admission. However, some activities have additional fees.
