Zoo Atlanta

The first thing to know about Zoo Atlanta is its unreal origin story! Outside of Marietta in March of 1889, a traveling circus ran into financial problems which caused the workers to abandon the animals. People continued to visit them so frequently that a local businessman purchased all the animals at an auction and moved them to Grant Park.

Now, you can bring your family to walk around the 40 acres and see over 1,500 animals representing 220 species! There are also daily experiences including kid-friendly activities and wild encounters. So, not only is Zoo Atlanta a great place to be outside, but it’s also a great place for kids to learn.
